10×16 Lean to Shed Plans

Ovidiu 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 10×16 lean to shed shed plans. This is a narrow shed but providing lots of storage space, having a lean to roof. The shed comes with a low slope so it is ideal for areas with low precipitations. You can adjust the size of the double front doors so it suits your needs. . 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 10×16 shed with a lean to roof

Building the floor frame

Building the floor frame

First of all, you need to build the floor frame for the 10×16 lean to shed. Cut the joists from 2×6 lumber at the dimensions shown in the diagram. Lay the joists on a level surface and then align the edges flush. Make sure the corners are square and then drill pilot holes through the rim joists. Insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock the components together tightly.

Fitting the skids

Fitting the skids

Select the location for the storage shed. Level the surface and make sure you remove the vegetation layer. Fit 4×4 skids under the floor frame. Place the skids equally spaced and then lock them to the frame with rafter ties.

Fitting the floor sheets

Fitting the floor sheets

Fit the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the floor of the shed. Cut the sheets to the dimensions shown in the diagram. Align the edges flush and leave no gaps between them. Insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock the sheets along the joists, every 8″.

Back wall frame

Back wall frame

Cut the components for the back wall from 2×4 lumber, after taking accurate measurements. 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. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush. Place double studs at both ends of the wall. Fit 1/2″ plywood blockings between the double studs.

Building the front wall frame

Building the front wall frame

Cut the components from 2×4 lumber at the dimensions shown in the plans, in order to build the front wall. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Use 2×6 lumber for the double header and fit 1/2″ plywood between the beams. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to assemble the double header. You can adjust the size of the door opening to suit your needs, using the same techniques described above.

Side wall frame

Side wall frame

Cut the components for the back wall from 2×4 lumber, after taking accurate measurements. 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. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush.

Assembling the shed frame

Assembling the shed frame

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

Back top wall frame

Back top wall frame

Build the top frame for the back wall. Cut all the components from 2×4 lumber as shown in diagram. 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.

Fitting the top back wall

Fitting the top back wall

Fit the frame to the top of the back wall. Align the edges with attention and make sure the frame is perfectly plumb. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plate and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the back wall.

Side wall panels

Side wall panels

Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the sides of the lean to shed. Align the edges flush and leave no gaps between the sheets. Insert 6-8d nails every 8″ along the framing.

Back wall siding panels

Back wall siding panels

Fit the sheets to the back of the shed. Align the edges with attention and make sure there are no gaps between the panels. Insert 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the framing.

Front wall panels

Front wall panels

Fit the panels to the front of the shed. Align the edges with attention and make the necessary cuts, so you can fit the panels around the opening. Use 6-8d nails to lock the panels into place, every 8″ along the framing.
