This design is now on display at the Vermont Factory, take the tour, see how they are made and walk into a huge display yard including a 8x Timber Frame Overhang.
The 8x Overhang is a popular addition to the 20×30 Vermont Cabin, 20×30 Garage, 20×30 Barn and 20×30 Sugar Shack. Use these porch overhang plans to build a space to relax in, store firewood, or use as an additional carport for keeping vehicles and farm equipment out of the rain.
We use the same 8×8 hemlock timber frame and corrugated metal roof that is used on our 20×30 timber frames. A floor system is included. Some clients have opted to enclose the overhang to increase the interior square footage of their cabins. We are able to sell additional lumber for making modifications to this kit as needed. The floor system may also be removed if installing this post and beam overhang on a concrete slab or the joists and decking can be upgraded to pressure treated. These instructions for building a shed roof with an overhang can be used for cabins, cottages, barns, and more.
