This artful 24×24 hammer truss heavy timber frame can be a great asset in many situations! It would make a wonderful great room extension to your existing home. You could also incorporate this space into a new construction hybrid timber frame design as a spectacular, high-volume great room. And the 576 square foot space can stand alone as a dramatic guest house. Although the hammer trusses deserve to be left exposed so their beauty can be enjoyed, the 26-foot high ceiling created by the 10 in 12 roof pitch can accommodate a small loft space for sleeping. There is of room for any style of windows, and plenty of them!
The plan is designed with purlins to accept energy-efficient SIPs (structural insulated panels). And all timber is less than 16 feet in length, making the material cost-effective to purchase, and the frame easier to raise. The hammer beam trusses create a wonderful, completely open floor space that you can mold to enhance whatever activities you can dream up!
