16×24 Backyard Pavilion Roof – Free DIY Plans

Ovidiu 2 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy woodworking project is about a 16×24 outdoor pavilion roof plans. This is PART 2 of the large rectangular pavilion project, where I show you how to build the roof and how to attach the decorative trims. The roof has a 12:6 pitch, but you easily adjust it, if you need something else. 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 15×20 pavilion roof

Building the rafters

Building the rafters

Use 2×6 lumber for the rafters. Make 26.6 degree cuts to both ends 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 to the pavilion

Fitting the rafters to the pavilion

Fit the rafters to the top of the pavilion, using the information from the diagram. It is important to space the rafters properly (every 24″ on center), otherwise you won’t be able to attach the roofing sheets. Use rafters ties to lock the beams into place.

Roofing sheets

Roofing 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.

Fitting the side trims

Fitting the side 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.

Gable trims

Gable 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.

Fitting the roof

Fitting the roof

Cover the roof with tar paper and then install the asphalt shingles. Make sure you also install the appropriate drip edges, so you can seal the shed roof. Read the manufacturer’s instructions for a tight fit.

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. Make sure you take a look over PART 1 of the project, where I show you how to build the frame of the pavilion.
