Take a good look at this beautiful cantilevered timber frame pavilion! The low-pitched roof is supported by two 6” posts, each with two asymmetrical knee braces, leaving plenty of flexible open floor area. The generous 14 foot by approximately 8 foot cantilevered roof allows for plenty of room for a conversation area, outdoor kitchen, grill station, hot tub shelter or outdoor dining space. The low pitch cantilever creates an interesting, contemporary addition to your back yard. Cover the purlins with metal, thatch or shingle roofing for protection from the rain, or leave them exposed for a sun screen.
There is plenty of floor area since the two posts are offset from the center of the roof. The strength in the cantilever comes from being sure the posts are secured deep into the ground.If you want to add even more privacy, you can add screening in between the posts and grow some climbing vines.
The plan set contains 18 sheets in a pdf that prints on 8.5″x11″ and includes piece drawings for all the parts in the frame. We have also included some blown up isometric drawings to help you visualize the joinery better. The drawings are ready for instant download and are easy to run off from your home printer.
