Are you thinking about a timber frame pavilion for the upcoming spring and summer weather? Unless you’ve built one before, you’ll probably need a general idea about the best dimensions for it.
It’s all about personal space. For everyone inside a pavilion to feel comfortable, each one needs a minimum amount of square footage. The amount of space varies depending on whether the person is seated or standing, but not by a tremendous amount.
Here’s what you should account for with your new Homestead Timber Frames pavilion:
- 8 sq. ft. is the minimum used per person for a stand-up reception.
- 10 sq. ft. is the median used per person for a stand-up reception.
- 12 sq. ft. is the maximum used per person for a stand-up reception and allows for a normal sized stage and isle ways.
- 15 sq. ft. per person is used for a seated affair.
Of course there’s a lot more to deciding how large or small to design your pavilion than just the minimum space requirements. Come talk with us about creating an outdoor oasis where you can relax and entertain.
