16×24 Cruck Timber Frame Plan


A cruck timber frame is quite possibly the most beautiful and artistic of all the styles of frames. Crucks were often used in medieval times as tithe barns. Now you can build this 16x24 cruck timber frame to grace your own property!  We have designed the curved cruck out of two timbers instead of the long single cruck-blade to make your job easier. We sized the blades so they could be cut by a modern manufacturer. A graceful hammer beam joins and supports them. 

  • Dimensions are 16’ x 24’ from outside to outside of the posts; two bay design
  • 2 foot rafter overhangs; 1’-4’ gable overhangs
  • Height to top of rafters at ridge: +/- 18’ - 7 ⅝”
  • Height to top of plates: 10’-0”
  • Embellished rafter tails and hammer beam ends
  • Graceful curves in crucks and tie beam
  • 12:12 roof pitch
  • Plan utilizes 3363 board feet

When you buy this plan, you will receive links to download the plan sets. The construction set contains 9 pages formatted to print on 11x17 paper, although you can print a study set on letter-size paper. In this set you will find 3D drawings, including an exploded one so you can see all the parts of the frame. You will get post and rafter plans, sections and elevations, and detail drawings fully explaining what you need to do. Then there is the piece drawing set, with 15 pages showing you every cut you will be making on each timber. We also include connector, parts and timber lists so you know exactly what materials you need.

Impressive drawings and easy to understand

I sent an email requesting the drawings to be in metric and was quoted a very high price for converting. Some CAD system have the function of converting imperial to metric at the click of a button. Only three countries in the world use the imperial system, maybe if you offered this service your sales may increase globally. Thanks for the great work.
