This 18×24 Hammer Beam truss plan is truly a work of art! If you are an experienced timber framer, this will make a superb project to showcase your skills. There are so many features in this design that create a beautiful, exciting space! The hammer beam trusses have great style with embellished hammer posts. Elongated hammer braces and sturdy x-bracing add to the beauty of the trusses. The posts are called gunstock posts – they are larger at the top which allows two timbers to join and overlap at the top, and that flare adds a special look.
