You can download the plans the instant you make your purchase. They are formatted to print out at 11”x17” to make reading the details easier. The 28-page plan set includes 3D axonometric drawings of the frame, assembled and exploded. The exploded drawings show labels for every timber, and those labels correspond to the detailed and dimensioned piece drawings so you know exactly what to do to cut the frame. We provide a timber list to make shopping for your materials easier.

Pavilion Plans

I bought the plans for a 24x36 king post pavilion to construct for our community. Although we have not started on the project yet the design and plans seem excellent with images and detail dimensions of all timbers, joinery and a timber inventory of pieces with board foot calculations. This is an excellent product that will make our layout, cutting and erection very helpful.

Good size structure

I like the size and design of the carport, but i wish i could have gotten a paper set of plans on a larger scale.
