This lovely 18×12 timber frame pavilion plan is a perfect size to fit in practically any landscape, yet large enough for so many purposes. You could create a dining pavilion, great workshop or sweet backyard retreat.
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.
Are you wanting the beauty and strength of heavy timbers but want to avoid cutting all the traditional joinery? Take a look at this 12×24 post and beam pavilion plan! It is a great medium size that can fit in many landscapes, yet it is big enough to accommodate multiple activities- think of an outdoor kitchen and dining pavilion, for one!
