Take a good look at this 20×24 king post timber frame plan! The dimensions of this structure would make an outstanding two-bay garage. With 480 square feet of space, it would also make a comfortable guest house or spacious workshop. The top of the plates are over nine feet high, and at a 6 in 12 pitch the ridge stands at well over 13 feet for a nice ceiling height. However, the plan includes roof pitch drawings from 3 in 12 all the way to 12 in 12, so take your pick!
There is wonderful architectural detailing in this timber frame pavilion. The curved struts in the king post braces, and the curved knee braces, set the tone. The spline joinery in the beams and scarf joints in the plates make this a project any timber framer can be proud of. The heavy timbers used in the posts and trusses make for a sturdy building, suitable for many uses.
Thinking of a storage loft or crawl-in sleeping loft? Depending on the roof pitch you choose, there is enough headroom that you could add a floor over part of the space. Of course, you may choose to enjoy the volume ceiling instead of adding a loft.
The instant-download PDF drawings consist of 32 sheets, which includes renderings, plan, elevation and sectional drawings, along with all the piece and joinery details you will need to build this frame. There is a timber list and fastener schedule to make procuring your materials easier. There are also 3D drawings so you can visualize the project. The plan set is formatted in an instantly downloadable PDF for easy printing at home on 8 ½” x 11” paper.
