10×12 Shed with Side Porch Plans

Ovidiu 2 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 10×12 shed with side porch plans. If you want to build a simple and compact shed, but you want to add a twist to it, these plans should suit your needs perfectly. This shed features a front door and double side doors for an easy access to the inside. The side porch adds unique appeal to the project. 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.

How to build a 10×12 shed with porch

Floor frame

Floor frame

The first step of the project is to build the floor frame. Cut the components from 2×6 lumber, as shown in the diagram. Place the joists every 16″ on center, for a professional result. Check if the corners are are square, drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws.

Fitting the skids

Fitting the skids

Select the location for the shed and level the surface thoroughly. Remove the vegetation layer and make sure you comply with the local building codes. Fit the skids on the location. Place the floor frame and then use rafter ties to lock the skids to the frame. Align the edges with attention for a professional result.

Floor sheets

Floor sheets

Fit the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the floor frame and align the edges with attention. Insert 1 5/8″ screws every 8″ along the joists. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.

Side wall frame

Side wall frame

Build the side walls of the shed from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Align the edges and make sure the corners are square. Alternatively, you could use framing nails and a framing gun.

Front wall frame

Front wall frame

Continue the project by assembling the front wall frame. Use 2×4 lumber for the front wall frame. Use 2×6 lumber and 1/2″ plywood for the double door header. Use 1/2″ plywood and 2×6 beams and 1/2″ plywood for the window headers. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush. You can adjust the size of the door and window openings to suit your needs.

Back wall frame

Back wall frame

Build the back wall for the shed using the same techniques described above and the information from the diagram. Cut the studs and then the plates from 2×4 lumber. 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.

Side wall with doors frame

Build the opposite side wall using the diagram shown above. Cut the components from 2×4 at the dimensions shown in the diagram. Use 2×6 lumber and 1/2″ plywood for the double header. Fit the header into place and make sure the corners are square. Adjust the size of the double doors to suit your needs.

Assembling the shed frame

Assembling the shed frame

Fit the wall frames to the floor of the shed. Align the edges with attention and plumb the walls with a spirit level. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the floor. Lock the adjacent walls together tightly using 3 1/2″ screws.

Side wall with doors siding

Side wall with doors siding

Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the side wall with doors. Mark the cut lines on the sheets and then get the job done with a circular saw. Align the edges with attention and insert 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the framing.

Plain side wall with siding

Plain side wall with siding

Fit the siding panels to the opposite side wall of the shed, as show in the diagram. Leave no gaps between the sheets and align everything with attention. Insert the nails so you can lock the sheets into place tightly.

Front wall

Front wall

Fit the siding sheets to the front wall of the shed. Make cuts so you can fit the sheets around the door opening and around the window opening.

Back wall siding

Back wall siding

Fit the siding to the back wall of the shed, in the same manner described above.

Porch posts

Porch posts

Fit 4×4 posts so you can frame the porch of the shed. You need to pour 3′ footings and then use anchors to lock the posts into place. Use a spirit level to plumb the posts and then fit the top beam, as show in the diagram. Use metal connectors to secure the beam to the top of the posts.
