Seeking plans for 20x24 high posted cape
« on: October 04, 2017, 08:01:51 AM »
Hello everyone,

I am looking to build a workshop. My initial plan started off as the 12x16 Sobon shed, but I need a lot more space and do not want to outgrow it soon. Ideally, I am seeking to build a three bent, 20x24 high posted cape. I like the look of the queen truss design but I am open to suggestions.  I would like a clear span on the middle bent.

 I recently cut down some large white pines on my property which I want to have miled. (Currently in search for someone with a mobile sawmill) I have a few 24 long 24 diameter, no knots. For the 20 cross tie in the middle bent,  I am trying to determine what size it should be- 8x12? I do plan on using the upstairs for light storage.

I am open to ideas. Please share any thoughts. 

Thank you
John Deere 970 tractor with several attachments, Massey Ferguson MF200 dozer

If you are willing to work with sketchup ( there is a free version), check out their 3D warehouse. It is loaded with all kinds of plans. Tens of thousands, some junk some great.   Searching is a bit of a challenge, as with everything involving computers and the Internet.
