This 28×20 timber frame saltbox is designed with common trusses and collar ties, which makes the cutting and raising a bit easier for a good-size frame. The saltbox style creates a ceiling on one side that soars to 19’-6” if you leave the collar ties exposed, creating a wonderful high-volume space. The plan is designed with a loft over the other half of the floor space, creating an area you can use for a bedroom, office, or any number of uses.
The saltbox style of house is a strong and simple one that has been seen in this country since the 1650’s. It’s a design with two stories in front and one in back. The roof pitch is short and high in front and long and low in back, creating a two story structure on one side.
This 28×20 timber frame saltbox has 560 square feet on the ground floor and 280 square feet on the second floor, which gives you a total of 840 square feet of versatile space. Use this for a barn with hay loft, or a cabin in the woods, or a garage with workshop loft!
