This step by step diy project is about 10×14 lean to shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the free medium-sized lean shed plans, where I show you how to build the lean to roof and how to attach the siding sheets. Make sure you check the local codes and make adjustments to the plans, if required. 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 10×14 lean to shed roof
The first step of the project is to build the rafters for the lean to shed. Use 2×6 lumber for the rafters. Mark the cut lines on the boards and then get the job done with a circular saw.
Fit the rafters to the top of the shed, every 16″ on center. Use rafter ties to lock the rafters into place tightly.
Use 2×4 lumber for the sides of the lean to roof. Use a miter saw to make the angle cuts, then drill pocket holes at both ends. Secure them into place with 2 1/2″ screws.
Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the sides of the shed. Mark the cut lines on the sheets and then get the job done with a circular saw. Align the edges and insert 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the framing.
Use 3/4″ plywood for the roofing sheets. Cut the sheets at the right dimensions and then lay them to the rafters. Align the edges with attention and insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the framing. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.
Use 2×8 lumber for the side overhangs. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then lock them together tightly with 3 1/2″ screws. Make sure the edges are flush and check if the corners are square. Fit 1×8 trims to the front and back of the roof. Use 2 1/2″ nails to secure the trims into place tightly.
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.
