14×14 Pavilion Roof Plans

Ovidiu 5 GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy woodworking project is about a 14×14 outdoor pavilion roof plans. This is PART 2 of the rectangular pavilion project, where I show you how to build the roof. This roof has a 6:12 pitch, but you can adjust it super easily. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build a 14×14 pavilion roof



Use 2×6 lumber for the rafters. Make 45 degree cuts tat one end of the 2×6 rafters. Mark the cut lines to the rafters and then get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper. Make the notches into the rafters, so you can fit them into place tightly.

Fitting the rafters

Fitting the rafters

Fit the rafters to the top of the pavilion, using the information from the diagram. It is important to space the rafters properly (every 16″ on center), otherwise you won’t be able to attach the roofing sheets. Use rafters ties to lock the beams into place.

Fitting the roof sheets

Fitting the roof sheets

Use 3/4″ plywood for the roof of the pavilion. Cut the sheets at the right dimensions and then lay them to the top of the pavilion. Leave no gaps between the sheets and then insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the rafters, so you can secure them into place tightly.

Side roof trims

Side roof trims

Fit 1×8 trims to the sides of the pavilion. Align the edges with attention and insert 2″ nails to lock them into place tightly.

Roof trims

Fit the 1×8 trims to the front and back of the pavilion. Make the angle cuts to the trims before locking them into place with 2″ nails.

Fill the holes with wood putty and let them dry out for a few hours. Smooth the surface with 100-200 grit sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth. Apply a few coats of stain or paint to enhance the look of the pavilion.

    Isn’t this a 6/12 pitch roof? You reference it as a 1:1 pitch…

      You’re right. Thank you. I’ve corrected the error.

    About how much did Part 1 & Part 2 cost in total for material? I’m comparing the cost to a cedar pre-made purchase from Costco to me just building it myself. $1899 pre manufactured.

      See the Made from this Section, where people who built the project share info, including the total costs.

    My footings will be 14.5′ apart (as opposed to 14′) but I think I can follow your plans pretty much as written, just adjusting by three” on either side and dropping the pitch slightly. Is that right?
