10×14 Horse Shelter Roof Plans

This step by step diy woodworking project is about 10×14 horse shelter roof plans. This article is Part 2 of the horse shelter project. Therefore, if you want to build the lean to roof for the 10×14 shelter, take a look over this article. Make sure you check out the rest of plans to see alternatives and more projects for your garden.

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 the rafters

Building the rafters

Build the rafters from 2×4 lumber.

Making the notches to the rafters

Making the notches to the rafters

Make a notch to the bottom of the rafters, using the information from the diagram. Smooth the recess with a damp cloth.

Fitting the rafters

Fitting the rafters

Fit the rafters to the top of the shelter. Drill pilot holes and lock the rafters to the structure with screws. Place the rafters every 24″ on center.

Fitting the side siding

Fitting the side siding

Attach 4’x8′ T1-11 siding to the frame of the shelter. Use 1 5/8″ brad nails to lock the sheets into place tightly.

Fitting the rafter trims

Fitting the rafter trims

Fit 2×4 trims to the ends of the rafters. Drill pilot holes through the trims and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the rafters.

Attaching the roofing sheets

Attaching the roofing sheets

Attach 3/4″ plywood sheets to the rafters, using the pattern shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the rafters.

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 12″ piece for the top ridge. Fit the side drip edges over the roofing felt, while the bottom drip edges should be fit under.

Take care of the finishing touches, by filling the holes with wood putty. Cover the components with paint, to protect the structure from the elements.

Fitting the side slats

Fitting the side slats

This step is optional. Attach 1×6 slats to the interior of the horse shelter, as shown in the diagram. Use 1 5/8″ screws to lock the slats into place properly. Place the slats equally-spaced.

Fitting the back slats

Fitting the back slats

Fit slats to the back of the shelter, as well. The slats will protect the siding from potential damages.
