This step by step diy project is about 10×12 gable shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the shed project, where I show you how to build the gable roof for the 10×12 shed. This shed is a good addition to any backyard, as you will have a building with easy access and a nice design. 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.

Building a 10×12 gable shed roof plans
Build the half of the rafters from 2×6 lumber. Mark the cut lines on the lumber and then get the job done with a circular saw. Set the miter saw at 33.7 degrees to make the angle cuts.
Next, fit 1/2″ plywood over the joints and align the edges. Insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock the gussets into place tightly.
Fit the trusses to the top of the shed. Plumb the trusses vertically and place the every 24″ on center. Use rafter ties to lock the trusses into place tightly. Use a spirit level to plumb the trusses before securing them into place tightly.
Fit T1-11 siding panels to the gable ends. Mark the cut lines on the panels and then lock them into place with 6d nails. Leave no gaps between the panels.
Fit the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the other side of the roof, as shown in the diagram. Leave no gaps between the sheets and insert 1 5/8″ screws.
Fit the 2×8 lumber for the roof trims. Make the angle cuts and then secure them into place with 3 1/2″ screws.
Fit the 1×8 trims to the sides of the storage shed.
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. Alternatively, you could also install metal sheets.
I have lots of other shed projects on the site so I recommend you to browse through all alternatives before starting the building project. See all my shed projects HERE. Moreover, check out PART 1 of the shed, so you learn how to build the frame of the shed. Check out PART 3 to learn how to build the double side doors, the front door and how to fit the decorative trims.
