10×10 Barn Shed Plans

Julian 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 10×10 barn shed plans. I have designed this shed with a gambrel roof so you can store you items and protect them from the elements. This shed also features a nice loft, so you can enhance the storage space even more. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration. Remember that you need to select the site for the shed with attention and that you have to comply with a few legal regulations.

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.

Building a 10×10 gambrel shed

assembling-the-floor-of-the-shed

Assembling-the-floor-of-the-shed

The first step of the project is to build the frame for the floor of the 10×10 shed. Cut the components from 2×6 lumber and then smooth the edges with sandpaper. Align the edges flush, making sure the corners are right-angled. Drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the regular joists. Measure the diagonals of the floor so you make sure they are perfectly equal.

Attach the 6×6 skids to the floor of the shed, as shown in the free plans. Use screws or metal connectors to lock the skids to the floor of the shed.

Attach the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the floor of the shed. Align the edges flush and then secure the sheets into place with 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the joists. Leave no gaps between the components for a professional result.

side-wall-frames

Side-wall-frames

Build the side wall frames from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws or 16d nails to lock them together tightly. As you can easily notice in the diagram, the studs are placed every 16″ on center, so you get a really strong structure.

fitting-the-side-walls

Fitting-the-side-walls

Fit the side walls to the floor of the shed. Use a spirit level to plumb the walls and then secure them into place by inserting 3 1/2″ screws through the bottom plates into the floor of the shed. Use temporarily braces to lock the walls into place, till you install the front and the back wall frames, as well.

front-wall-frame

Front-wall-frame

Build the front wall frame for the shed using 2x4s. Cut the components at the dimensions shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. In addition, I recommend you to use 2×6 lumber for the double header. Lock everything together tightly with screws.

back-wall-frame

Back-wall-frame

Assemble the back wall frame in the same manner described above, bu paying attention to the information from the above diagram.

Assembling-the-frame-of-the-shed

Fit the wall frames to the shed floor, as shown in the diagram. Lock the adjacent walls together tightly with 3 1/2″ screws. Make sure the corners are square and then lock the frames to the floor with 3 1/2″ screws, driven through the bottom plates.

fitting-the-siding-panels-to-the-back-wall

Fitting-the-siding-panels-to-the-back-wall

Attach 5/8″ T1-11 siding to the back wall. Align the edges with attention and lock them into place with 4d nails. Leave no gaps between the components for a professional result.

fitting-the-siding-to-the-side-walls

Fitting-the-siding-to-the-side-walls

Attach the siding panels to the sides of the shed, in the same manner described above. Insert the nails every 8″ along the studs of the shed walls.

fitting-the-siding-to-the-front-wall

Fitting-the-siding-to-the-front-wall

Attach the siding panels to the front of the shed. As you can see in the plans, you need to make some cuts so the panels fit around the door opening. Use 4d nails to secure the panels into place tightly.
