If you want to build a true timber frame structure while using easily-acquired lumber, check out this 12x16 Saltbox Plan! It uses 4x and 6x material, so it’s also pretty economical to build! In true saltbox fashion, this frame has an asymmetrical roof. This makes one top plate stand higher than the other and gives you lots of opportunity to install cladding and windows to suit your purposes. The common truss design simplifies your work and creates a clean frame.
