This step by step diy woodworking project is about a 10×16 field shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the shed project, where I show you how to build the gable roof. This roof has a 2:1 pitch, but you can adjust it super easily. 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.

How to build a 10×16 field shed roof
Use 2×4 lumber for the braces. Use a miter saw to make the 45 degree cuts at both ends of the braces and then lock them into place with 2 1/2″ screws.
Use 2×6 lumber for the rafters. Use a miter saw to make the angle cuts at both ends of the rafters. Smooth the edges with sandpaper
Use 2×6 lumber for the bottom rafters, as well. Use a circular saw to make the angle cuts at both ends.
Use 2×4 lumber for the vertical supports. Use a saw to make the angle cuts at the top of the supports and then fit them into place. Align the edges with attention.
Use 1/2″ plywood for the gussets. Lay the gussets over the joints and align the edges with attention. Use 1 5/8″ screws to lock the gussets into place.
Fit the trusses to the top of the shed frame. Place the trusses every 24″ on center and plumb them with a spirit level. Use rafter ties to lock the trusses into place tightly.
Use T1-11 siding sheets to the side gable end panels. Align the edges with attention and leave no gaps between the panels. Insert 6d nails, every 8″ along the framing.
Use 3/4″ plywood for the roof sheets. Cut the sheets at the right dimensions and then secure them into place with 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the framing.
You can attach 1/2″ plywood sheets to the front overhang. Cut the sheets at the right dimensions and then fit them into place. Align the edges with attention and leave no gaps between the sheets. Insert 6d nails to secure the sheets into place tightly.
Use 1×8 lumber for the side roof trims. Make the angle cuts with a miter saw.
Fit the 1×8 boards to the sides of the shed. Align the edges with attention and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly.
Fit the 1×8 trims to the front and back of the shed, as well.
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. Alternatively, you could also install metal sheets.
This run in shed is super sturdy and it features a classic design.
Don’t forget to take a look over PART 1 of the project, so you learn how to build the frame of the 12×12 shed. This pavilion is sturdy and it features a very elegant design that puts and emphasis on cost efficiency and durability. You can add railings to the exterior of the pavilion.
