If you are looking for plans to add a porch or living space to your home, look no further than this 20×16 Connext porch plan. You could also build this as a freestanding pavilion for al fresco dining, or a guest cottage. With an 8:12 roof pitch, the ridge stands at almost 17 feet to create a spacious feeling. There is no center post, so you have a clear floor area between the posts.
- 320 square feet under roof
- 8×8 heavy Eastern White Pine posts
- Metal angle braces at the corners add rigidity and good looks
- Rafter and purlin roof construction
- Connections are made with T-Rex connectors instead of joinery
The plans include 14 pages full of detailed information, formatted for printing on 11×17 paper. There are 3D renderings, and dimensioned plans, sections and elevations. Dimensioned piece drawings are included for every timber, showing the cuts necessary to install the T-Rex connectors. And there are timber and fastener schedules so you can easily budget for and purchase your materials.
