10×14 Shed Plans

This step by step diy project is about 10×14 shed plans. This compact shed features a gable roof, double front doors for easy access and a side window. If you need more storage space or a small workshop, you should take a look over this free guide. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration. Remember that you need to select the site for the shed with attention and that you have to comply with a few legal regulations.

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.

How to build a 10×14 shed

Building the floor frame

Building the floor frame

First of all, you need to build the floor frame for the shed. Therefore, you have to cut all the joists from 2×6 lumber. Lay all the joists on a level surface and drill pilot holes through the rim beams. Insert 3 1/2″ screws through the rim joists into the perpendicular components. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush.

Fitting the skids

Fitting the skids

Select the location for the shed, making sure you also read and comply with the local building codes. Remove the vegetation layer and then compact a thick layer of gravel. Lay the 4×4 skids to the  ground and then fit the floor frame. Align the edges flush and use rafter ties to lock the skids to the floor frame tightly.

Floor sheets

Floor sheets

Attach the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the floor frame, using the pattern show in the plans. Align the edges flush and leave no gaps between the sheets. Insert 1 5/8″ screws every 8″ along the joists, for a professional result.

Front wall - Frame

Front wall – Frame

Continue the project by assembling the front wall for the 10×14 shed. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then drill pilot holes through the plates. Insert 3 1/2″ screws through the plates into the studs. Use 2×6 lumber for the door double header. Fit a piece of 1/2″ plywood between the 2×6 headers. Add glue to the joints, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock everything together tightly. You can adjust the size of the door opening to suit your needs.

Back wall - Frame

Back wall – Frame

Build the back wall for the shed in the same manner described above. 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 window - Frame

Side wall with window – Frame

Frame the side wall with window for the 10×14 storage shed. As you can easily notice in the diagram, you need to use 2×4 lumber for the plates and studs, while the double headers require 2×6 beams and 1/2″ plywood. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs.

Moreover, you could adjust the size of the window openings to suit your needs. Place 1/2″ plywood blockings between the double studs that are placed at both ends of the wall frames.

Side wall - Frame

Side wall – Frame

Build the opposite wall from 2×4 lumber. Cut the studs and the plates from 2×4 lumber at the right dimensions, shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs every 24″ on center and make sure the corners are square.

Building a shed frame

Building a shed frame

Fit the wall frames to the floor of the shed. Align the edges flush and then plumb them with a spirit level. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the floor. Join the adjacent walls together tightly using 2 1/2″ screws. Make sure the corners are square for a professional result.

Fitting the side siding sheets

Fitting the side siding sheets

Cut the T1-11 siding sheets to the right dimensions and then secure them to the wall framing. Use 6-8d nails to lock the sheets into place. Insert the nails every 8″ along the framing for a professional result.

Back wall - Siding

Back wall – Siding

Attach the T1-11 siding panels to the back of the shed. As you can easily notice in the plans, you need to inset the sheets 1 1/2″ from the top plate. Use 6-8d nails to lock the sheets into place. Insert the nails every 8″ along the framing for a professional result.

Front wall - Siding

Front wall – Siding

Cut the sheets for the front of the shed. Align the sheets and then lock them into place with 6-8d nails, as shown in the diagram.

Side wall with window - Siding

Side wall with window – Siding

Make the cuts so you can fit the T1-11 siding around the window opening. Align the edges flush and insert 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the framing, for a professional result.
