10×12 Field Shelter Plans

Jack 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about field shelter plans. I have designed this basic animal shelter, so you create a shaded area for the horses, goats or sheep, when on the field. This shelter has a gable roof so it can drain the water easily and make the surface waterproof. 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 10×12 field shelter

Back wall frame

Back wall frame

The first step of the project is to build the back wall for the field shelter. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber at the right dimensions. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs every 24″ on center for a professional result. Make sure the edges are flush and check if the corners are square.

Next, build the front wall frame for the animal shelter. As you can easily see in the diagram, you need to leave a 8′ wide opening, for an easy access. Use 2×6 lumber and 1/2″ plywood for the double header. Use the same techniques to assemble the wall frame, as described above.

Building the side wall frames

Building the side wall frames

Build the side walls for the shelter. Place double studs at both ends of the walls for an added rigidity.

Assembling the frame of the shed

Assembling the frame of the shed

Assemble the frame of the shelter. Plumb the walls and align the edges flush. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock the adjacent walls together tightly.

Building the skids

Building the skids

Use 4×4 lumber for the skids. Make 45 degree cuts to both ends of the beams.

Fitting the skids

Fitting the skids

Place the skids under the front and the back walls for the shelter. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into skids. The skids will make moving the shelter from one location to another, very easily.

Back wall

Back wall

Attach the T1-11 siding sheets to the back wall of the shelter. Align the edges flush and insert 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the framing. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.

Side walls

Side walls

Fit the sheets to the sides of the shelter, as well. Place the sheets 1 1/2″ under the top plate. Use 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the framing.

Front wall

Front wall

Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the front of the shelter. Make cuts so you can fit the sheets around the opening. Insert 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the framing, so you can lock the sheets into place tightly.
