24×36 Saltbox Cabin

24x36 Saltbox Cabin
  • Description


Would you like to build a versatile cabin with a rich historical tradition?  This 24x36 Saltbox is typical of the style commonly found in New England. It has the characteristic one-story rear and two-story front of the saltbox style.  You can create lots of storage areas in the lower-ceiling part of the second floor.   You can add windows on the two-story face, and plenty of areas on the first floor walls. You’ll be proud to display your joinery skills with the plentiful scarf, spline and mortise & tenon joints!

The dimensions of this plan are 23’x35’ from outside to outside of the posts. This allows you to enclose the frame with 6" walls, and maintain a foundation dimension of 24'x36'.  There are 864 square feet on the first floor of this  24x36 Saltbox, and about  664 square  feet in the  second floor habitable space.  The ceiling height is 8’-5” for the ground floor, and 8’ in the greater part of the second floor.  The design creates a ridge height of 22’-2 1/2”. The lower plate stands at 10’- 11 7/8”, while the higher plate is at 15’- 11 7/8”. The roof pitches are 8:12.

As soon as you purchase these plans you will receive links to download the pdfs. The plan sets are formatted to print at 11”x17”, but you can print a study set on letter size paper from your home printer. We give you all the information you need to successfully complete this project. The construction set has 12 pages with three dimensional drawings so you can picture the finished product. We include production drawings, both exploded and assembled, with the timbers labeled corresponding  to the piece drawings.  We even include a 5-page architectural set configured as a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2  bath home with kitchen and dining!   If you choose to add the optional porch, we include the plans for the 10x10 king post truss frame as well.

We include post, loft and rafter plans, and both longitudinal and transverse sections. There are plenty of detail drawings to explain the finer points. The 39-page piece drawing set shows you every cut on each timber, fully dimensioned, and with each timber labeled to match the production drawings. We also provide you with timber, connector and parts lists, so you can easily purchase your materials.

    Requesting the cost range for the 24×36 Saltbox Cabin timber kit. Please just give me a ball park cost. I won’t know whether or not to pursue it until I have an idea of the cost. Don’t include delivery. For clinate zone, it’ll be built in north central Arkansas. Thanks

  2. Does this include foundation information? Is the foundation required to be a concrete pad?

  3. Justin, it does not come with a foundation plan. There are so many different types of foundations we choose not to represent one. With that said, we are available to create one specifically for your location and site conditions. While you can put this frame on a slab you can also put it on piers or a foundation wall.

  4. Do the plans include the 3D model? I would love to be able to add walls, fixture’s, and features to help visualize the space.

  5. Brandon Sullivan

    Hi Ryker, it does not include the 3D model. We do sell them by request but it only allows the ability to move the model around for different perspectives, zoom in/out, and hide individual components to focus on the others. Let me know at support@timberframehq.com if you’re interested.

    Really love this plan. I’ve been playing around with some floor plans in Sketchup and I keep running into issues with the braces on the two interior (jack?) posts. Given how that there is a brace on the exterior post less than 8 feet away (that brace extends to only 4’6″ from the interior post), could the interior braces be left off like they are in the 28×20 Saltbox frame?

  7. Yes, they can be left off. We add them everywhere as a default but most of the interior ones can be removed. When in doubt always consult an engineer.

  8. Hello may I have the cost for the 24×36 Saltbox Cabin timber kit? Also do you ship kits? Thank you
