12×24 Post and Beam Pavilion


If you love the look and durability of timber frames but want to avoid cutting all that joinery, this 12x24 post and beam pavilion may just fit the bill! The beautiful heavy timbers in this frame are joined with T Rex connectors, Timberlinx and structural screws, which gives it plenty of strength. In fact, it was originally designed to withstand the snow loads of the High Sierras. This medium sized frame will fit into many spaces, but it is large enough to accommodate a wide variety of activities. You could make this a great outdoor kitchen/dining pavilion!

  • King post truss design with rafters, purlins and batten roof structure
  • 288 square feet between the posts
  • Designed for +/- 10 foot tall posts, which can be shortened if desired
  • Maximum overall height just under 15 feet
  • Top of tie beam is approximately 10’-3” above the ground
  • Roof pitch is 7:12

We don’t leave you scratching your head trying to puzzle out how to complete the build of this 12x24 post and beam pavilion ! Our plans give you all the information you need to get the job done. The 10-page construction set has 3D drawings, including an X-ray axonometric so you can see how everything goes together. There are dimensioned post and roof plans, elevations and sections with plenty of callouts showing where the connectors go. The 11-page piece set shows every timber with dimensions for each cut on it. You will receive a link to download the pdf plans as soon as you make your purchase. They are best printed at 11”x17”, but you can print them on letter for study purposes.
