Mortise and Tenon Annex
Mortise and Tenon Annex
Mortise and Tenon Annex Features
Big buildings need big additions! Our Vermont Cabins and Two Bay Garage use Mortise and Tenon joinery in their construction, and this series of annexes is built to match. The framing of these annexes is 8×8 rough sawn hemlock, giving these additions strength and longevity. As you choose which annex is right for you, think about how you anticipate using the extra space.
This overhang grants you the extra space that you need while not technically adding to the interior square footage of your building, and is the simplest annex we offer. If you are looking for outdoor, covered storage or a place to relax in the shade, an overhang kit is ideal.
Much like an overhang, a porch is open air with the added benefits of having a floor system. This DIY wooden porch kit includes everything you need to add a covered porch with floor decking to your Vermont Cabin or Two Bay Garage. 8×8 rough sawn hemlock mortise and tenon wall framing with angle braces, hemlock rafters, corrugated metal roof, and aluminum flashing are used. Many Jamaica Cottage Shop buildings come with a porch, but not all do. Adding a porch is a wonderful way to incorporate useable outdoor lounging space with your cottage, garage, or cabin. All buildings can be enhanced by adding a solid post and beam porch. Set up some chairs or a hammock along the porch to enjoy the warm sunny days right from the comfort of your backyard. A large porch adds a welcome aesthetic style to many building models.
With walls on all sides, the Mortise and Tenon Enclosure is the perfect solution if you want to make our timber frame Vermont Cabins and the Two Bay Garage includes everything you need to add an extra room to your post and beam building. Purchase this kit to create additional rooms, a workshop, or an enclosed storage area. For those who are working from home, the kit could be installed on the garage to be used as an office that is separate from a living area.
