If you are just beginning in timber framing, or are looking for a small, inexpensive and easy-to-handle project, this 10×12 shed roof design could be the perfect plan for you! The largest timbers are 6x material, which makes them not only lighter to move around but more economical to purchase.
This hexagonal timber frame gazebo plan was originally designed as a barbeque gathering area holding a smoker. It would be a great enhancement to any garden! The posts are cut from 12×12 timbers to fit the hexagonal shape. This frame has a commanding presence with an overall height of a bit over 16’-5”. The top of the 4×8 collar beams are 10 feet high, and the roof pitch is a bit over 8 in 12. It is designed to be constructed of Western Red Cedar, maple or hemlock.
