24×24 Timber Frame Lean-to with Loft

24x24 Shed Roof Plan with Loft 3D

This spacious 24×24 timber frame lean-to with loft has plenty of room to serve whatever use you can dream up!  The first floor has an 8-foot ceiling height below the loft, and in the area open to the roof, you get over 16 feet of height!  This area, perfect for a great room, also boasts an unbroken wall over 13 feet tall that would be perfect for a huge bank of windows. With all that space, this frame would make a great garage/workshop or a  contemporary not-so-tiny home.  The first floor gives you 576 square feet of space.  And the 296-square-foot loft feels roomy, with a ceiling that climbs to over 10 feet.

The 872 square feet in this 24×24 timber frame lean-to with loft gives you plenty of options. The single-plane roof means less cutting of joints, although there is plenty of interesting joinery to show off, with spline and scarf joints along with the mortise and tenon connections. The roof pitch is a gentle 3:12, and generous two-foot overhangs give you plenty of protection from the elements.

As soon as you purchase the plans for this 24×24 timber frame lean-to with loft , you receive a link to download the pdfs. They are formatted to print 11×17 inches for easy reading, although you can print study plans from home on letter paper.  We give you all the information you need to make this project successful! The construction set has 13 pages, including 3D and exploded drawings, solid and transparent, so you can see how the timbers interact.  We include fully dimensioned plans, elevation and section drawings, and detailed drawings of the more complex areas.

Each timber drawing is labeled corresponding to the construction drawings, so you know exactly how everything fits together. We also include a hardware and peg list, and a timber list, to make purchasing your materials easier.

  1. Hi,

    May I ask if these plans are in metric?

    In case «they are available in metrics too» please make sure it is not a simple conversion.

    A few years ago I purchased a GoKart plan that was a conversion from inches to cm and all dimensions had tiny decimals that were impossible to hold. Bitterly, the plan (and my money) ended in the bin.


  2. Does this plan include drawings for 4/12 and 5/12 pitch roofs like some of your other mono-pitch design plans?

  3. Could I get this plan, but to match a similar plan I found online that is stick built, also about 10 feet wider?

  4. We do take on custom projects and would like to talk to you further about yours. Check out our page, HERE, describing what we offer and the process of our custom design services. 

    Fill out the design questionnaire so we can understand your needs. That’s the best way to communicate with our team and get an estimate for design services.

  5. Hi Katrina,

    I’m looking at this design for a seasonal cottage, maybe a full-time residence…could you tell me what size timbers are required for this build? I have a lead on some freshly cut white pine and the sizes vary in this selection. Cheers!
