This sizable 26×30 timber frame workshop has a distinctive dual-slope roof shape that adds to its functionality. One side of the roof is set at a 36.1-degree slope (approximately a 9:12 pitch). The other side has an 18.4-degree slope or about a 4:12 pitch. That steeper pitch happens over the loft, giving you a headroom of 7 feet at the center of the space.
This frame is designed to be an enclosed workshop with a covered porch, but you could certainly enclose the whole space if you choose. There are generous two-foot overhangs for great protection from the elements.
- Actual dimensions are 25’-8 ½” x 29’-5”

- 756 square feet main level including 295 sq ft porch option; 231 square foot loft
- Mortise and tenon, spline and scarf joinery
