16×24 Gambrel Timber Frame Plan


SKU: 43617 Categories: , , Tags: ,

This 16x24 gambrel timber frame plan has all the charm of a barn in a smaller package! The attached shed roof makes a great area  that you can use as a porch or for more space inside. Half of the main floor is open to the ceiling above, for a big volume space.  The other half of the space is floored for a bedroom or loft.

The double-slope gambrel roof creates more storage or living space on the second floor. And the second level includes a shed dormer for more headroom and natural light.

  • Plenty of wall space to add windows in the first level, and in the queen post framing on the sides of the second level.
  • Frame measures 16’x24’ from outside to outside of the posts, plus almost 8 feet more to the shed roof posts.
  • Total footprint 24’x24’
  • Second floor area measures 12’x16’.
  • Total of 768 square feet of space! 

When you make your purchase we will email you links to download the pdfs of the plan sets. The construction set contains 12 pages including 3D drawings, post, loft and rafter plans, and plenty of sections so you can see all parts of the frame. We also include detail drawings explaining the finer points. 

We show you every cut you’ll make on each timber in the 42-page piece drawing set. And these drawings are keyed to a 3D view in the construction set so you know exactly where all the timbers go. We also send links to timber and connector lists, so you know everything you need to purchase.
