30×24 Timber Frame Cabin Plan


SKU: 25634 Categories: , Tags: ,

Do you have in mind a cabin in the woods, a not-quite-tiny house or a combination workshop/apartment? This generously sized frame opens up a world of possibilities!  The two-level queen post truss frame is flanked by a shed roof, and the combination creates a cabin with charm!  Leave the volume space open, or floor in part of the upper area for a storage loft! The knee wall creates a comfortable ceiling height in the upper area- so you can maximize your square footage by building the 190 square foot loft. If you don’t need the vaulted ceiling, then floor in the entire area for a grand total of about 1050 square feet! And the queen post truss gable ends are set up nicely for your window placement.

  • 667 square feet plus a 190 square foot loft
  • Actual footprint is 28′-11 3/4″ x  22′- 11 3/4″
  • Sturdy 8x post-construction 47-sheet instant-download pdf plans
  • Plans include renderings, plan, elevation and sectional drawings,  and timber and fastener lists
  • Detailed drawings show each cut on every timber

These plans include 3D drawings so you can visualize the end result of your work. We also include a timber list and fastener schedule so there is no guessing when it comes to acquiring your materials or making a budget. We provide you with drawings of every timber, dimensioning out each and every cut- so there is no head-scratching involved! The plan set is formatted in 8/12” x 11” so you can easily print it from home or your neighborhood print shop.
