8×12 Post and Beam Outbuilding


SKU: 7203 Categories: , , Tag:

This 8×12 post and beam outbuilding would make a wonderful gardener’s shed or playhouse! The 12/12 roof pitch creates a nice tall ceiling. The small size makes for a good beginner’s project, but it is easily customizable by adding windows, or increasing the length.

The plan set shows all the timbers you’ll need to use if you wish to do boards for the first floor deck and roof.  Or you can use 2″ planks for the first floor deck and roof, either way these plans can be used for both thicknesses of decking. The timber drawings show the locations of all the joints and housings.

The drawings include a timber list, and 3D drawings to help you visualize the finished product.

The 45 page plan set can be instantly downloaded and  printed on 8 ½” x 11″ standard letter size paper. You can copy a page to take out to your workshop and use to make notes, keeping the original for future reference.

Purchase this plan set today to help you construct a timber frame playhouse/shed!

Great plan

Very nice detailed plan. Easy to follow. Very good basic design, exactly what I was looking for. I plan to expand my building to either a 10 x 14 or 12 x 16, and this has all the information and dimensions to base that off of. The Cut list and true length list are key.
