10×12 Shed Roof Plan


Are you just getting started in timber framing? Are you looking for a small, inexpensive and easy-to-handle project? This 10x12 shed roof plan might be the ideal design for you! Because the timbers are no bigger than 6x material, they are lighter to move around  and less expensive to purchase. The single-plane shed roof means fewer joints to cut, and at only 704 board feet there are not too many timbers to buy!

  • Plan measures 10x12 from outside to outside of the posts
  • Roof pitch is 4:12
  • Top of lower eave plate +9’-9” high, top of upper eave plate +12’-11” high
  • Top of tie beam +8’-7” high
  • 4x6 braces and rafters, 6x6 posts, 6x8 tie beams, 6x10 plates
  • Generous 2 foot roof overhangs

When you make your purchase we will email you links to download the PDF plan set.  They are formatted to print on 11x17 paper, but you can print a study set on letter size. The construction set contains 10 pages of easy-to-understand drawings. There are 3D drawings, both assembled and exploded, and they are labeled to correspond to the tags on the piece drawings. There is a post and roof plan, and two sections. And we include a full page of detail drawings. The 10-page piece drawing plan set shows you every cut you’ll make on each timber, fully dimensioned. And we also include timber and connector lists to facilitate your budgeting and shopping.

Before our discussion, we urge you to buy the set of plans that most resembles the alteration that you seek. This will allow you to study the plans thoroughly, think through any other changes or design aspects that you want.

Are your plans engineered?

The plans we offer on our website are not stamped by an engineer. People build our frames all over the country, and in each location, there are different requirements.  Timber species, design loads and values needed are just some of the factors engineers need to take into account in each case.  

We do offer engineering services as an add-on to our standard plans. If this is something you are interested in, head HERE and fill out the brief questionnaire.  Armed with that information, we can get our heads into your project before we speak.  That way we are best prepared to answer all of your questions.

As soon as we get your information and give it a quick review we’ll contact you to schedule a meeting.

straight up great plans

I am new to timber framing and want to just take some time to get the wood, dry it and get to know the particular timbers i am working with. Then the hassle of coming up with the exact plans, lay out, joinery etc.. Ends the honeymoon.... Your plans were easy to find and are extremally detailed in an easy format to understand quickly, which is a great relief. Thank you guys, love it.
