Would you like to dress up the front of your home or business? You can really enhance your building with this 10x8 hammer-beam entry porch plan!  There is a lot of interest packed into the hammer-beam truss. The hammer posts are embellished with chamfered ends. Graceful, gently curved braces support the hammer beams and the generous three-foot overhang. The traditional mortise and tenon joinery give you lots of character, and the frame is further strengthened with concealed Timberlinx connectors at the corners. Build a piece of art to make your entry a focal point for your home!

  • 10 feet wide by 7 feet 6 inches  deep plus a three-foot front overhang
  • 9 feet high to the top of the eave girt

When you purchase this 10x8 hammer-beam entry porch plan you will receive a link to download the pdfs of the drawings to your computer.  The drawing sets are packed full of all the information you need to build this frame! The construction set has 5 pages with 3D renderings, and a fully dimensioned plan, section, and elevation drawings. There are detailed drawings showing plenty of information for critical areas. And we included an exploded perspective with every timber labeled. These labels correspond to the eighteen pages included in the piece drawing set, where every timber is drawn out in 2D and 3D with each cut dimensioned. We also include timber and connector lists to make budgeting and purchasing easier.

This plan is also included in the Master Plan Bundle and the Timber Frame Porch Plan Bundle.

Very Detailed Plans

The plans I purchased are very detailed. If I was a little younger I would attempt to build the Hammer Beam entry as it is planned. I am still interested in a kit though, if we can design something that is affordable and can be fit to my entry space.
