The construction plan set consists of 12 pages showing how the frame is put together. We give you 3D axonometric drawings from several different angles, so you can picture the finished product. There is an exploded view of the frame showing how the parts relate to each other. Then there are fully dimensioned plan, section, and elevation drawings. The 38-page piece drawing set shows each cut on every timber, fully dimensioned and in 3D transparent drawings. We also provide you with fastener and peg lists, and a complete timber list. All that makes your budgeting and material procurement straightforward.
When you make your purchase, you will receive a link to download the plan pdfs. They are formatted to print on 11×17 paper. You can print them on letter-size paper for studying, but when it comes time to build the frame, we strongly recommend having the plans printed full size on 11×17.
