10×12 Greenhouse Shed Roof Plans

This step by step diy project is about diy 10×12 greenhouse shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the saltbox greenhouse shed project, where I show you how to build the roof. From cutting to the rafters to installing the roofing, I’ve got you covered with all the info you need  to know. 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.

First of all you need to fit the 2×4 double plates to the front and back walls. Align the components with attention and insert 2 1/2 screws to lock them into place tightly.

Fitting the ridge beam

Continue the project by attaching the top ridge to the shed. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the supports and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly. Use a spirit level to plumb the supports vertically. Install the 2×6 top ridge to the top of the supports. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush.

Building the rafters

Building the rafters

Next, build the rafters for the greenhouse shed from 2×6 lumber. Make the angle cuts to one end of the rafters, as shown in the image.

Make small birdsmouth cuts to the top of the rafters, so you can fit them to the top ridge in a professional manner. Smooth the edges with attention.

Fitting the rafters

Fitting the rafters

Fit the rafters to the top of the shed and place them equally spaced, as shown in the diagram. Use rafter ties to secure the rafters into place tightly. Place the rafters every 24″ on center for a professional result.

The next step of the project is to fit the 2×4 supports to the roof of the saltbox greenhouse. The supports will hold the poly carbonate sheets.

Roof Sheets

Roof Sheets

Cut the roof sheets from 3/4″ plywood. Mark the cut lines on the sheets and then adjust them to the right size and shape. Lay the sheets to the top of the greenhouse shed and lock them into place every 8″ with 1 5/8″ screws. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.

Fit the polycarbonate sheets to the top of the greenhouse shed. Secure the sheets into place according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Fitting the roofing

Fitting the roofing

Cover the roof of the shed with roofing felt, making sure the strips overlap at least 2″. Secure the tar paper to the plywood sheets with roofing staples. In addition, cut a large piece for the top ridge. Fit the side drip edges over the roofing felt, while the bottom drip edges should be fit under.

Read the instructions labeled on the asphalt shingle packs before installing them into place tightly. Start with the bottom left side of the roof and install them all the way to the top.

This is one of a kind outdoor project, where I show you how to build a greenhouse shed. If you like flowers and other plants, this shed will protect them from the bad weather. There will be plenty of light inside the shed. You can build benches so you can use the space at maximum.
