12×16 Timber Frame Plan


This sweet 12×16 king post plan is big enough to accommodate many different types of activities but small enough to fit comfortably into even a very modest outdoor space. The pavilion has generous two-foot overhangs to allow plenty of room for a conversation area, hot tub shelter or outdoor dining space, and extra protection from rain. Cover the purlins with metal, tongue and groove decking and your roofing material of choice, or leave them exposed for a sunscreen with interesting shadows.

The 8 in 12 roof pitch gives this pavilion a nice stature and plenty of headroom. Leave the king post frame open to use as a pergola, or enclose it and use it as a small workshop or garden shed. You could even use acrylic panels to create a backyard greenhouse to grow your favorite plants during colder weather.

The plan set contains 15 sheets in a pdf that prints on 8.5″x 11″ paper. The set includes piece drawings for all the parts in the frame and a timber list.  We have also included some three-dimensional drawings to help you better visualize the joinery. The drawings are ready for instant download and are easy to runoff from your home printer.
