Do you want to add privacy and shade to your outdoor kitchen or grill station while keeping your ground area open and flexible for your needs? Take a look at this graceful post and beam cantilevered pergola! With an overall roof size of 14 feet by a bit over 8 feet, this structure can comfortably accommodate your conversation grouping, outdoor kitchen, or kid’s play area. It would also make a great poolside shade shelter. You can leave the purlins exposed for an Arbor effect or apply shingles or metal roofing over them for more shelter from sun and rain.
You will enjoy relaxing under the low-pitch single-slope roof. The 2-in-12 pitch cantilever creates a dynamic, contemporary space to enjoy the outdoors and brings great sculptural interest to your backyard. If you want to screen yourself from the neighbors, add some latticework between the posts for increased privacy or a place to train climbing plants to grow.
The PDF plans contain 18 pages full of drawings, 3d renderings, and a timber list, providing you with everything you will need to cut the frame quickly and accurately. The plans are formatted to letter-size paper, easily printed from your home, and ready for instant download.

This looks like a really interesting design. I live in the north eastern united states (NJ). We experience high winds and snow. Can you tell me if this type of plan could work in my area. I was hoping for an 8′ x 12′ bbq pavilion as permanent cover for 3 grills/smokers.
You should be good with it but it will not offer not coverage for you. Would you consider either https://timberframehq.com/8×12-shed-plan/ or https://timberframehq.com/shop/10×14-king-post-plan/?
Cool design Brice.
How do you recommend anchoring this structure?
We recommend that you embed the post into the ground with concrete.
Do you have or know any installer in Madison, WI?
Amit, you might find some in our directory
How far apart are the posts?
The posts are 10 feet apart, measured from outside to outside of the posts.
i live on the west coast and it rains A LOT , would this support safety glass ?
This is the perfect design for our outdoor kitchen but we want to create a corner condition. Do you have any designs that use this cantilever and turn the corner with a similar length?
No, but our custom design department could work that up for you- you can get more information on those services here
What is the depth that the primary support posts need to be embedded into the ground?
We recommend 2 feet.
