This step by step diy project is about 10×16 gable shed with porch roof plans. This is the second part of the shed with porch shed, where I show you how to frame the gable roof. This shed is ideal for any backyard, if you want to get to make a bold statement and still have storage space. 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 gable shed roof plans
Build the top rafters from 2×6 lumber. Mark the cut lines on the lumber and then get the job done with a circular saw. Set the miter saw at 33.7 degrees to make the angle cuts. As you can easily notice in the diagram, you need to build the bottom rafters from 2×4 lumber. Cut the rafters at the right dimensions and angles using a saw. Lay the rafters on a level surface and leave no gaps between the rafters.
Next, you need to build the supports that will reinforce the rigidity of the trusses, from 2×4 lumber. Fit 1/2″ plywood over the joints and align the edges. Insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock the gussets into place tightly.
Use 2×4 lumber for the porch rafters. Use a miter saw to make the angle cuts, as shown in the diagram.
Fit the trusses to the top of the shed. Plumb the trusses vertically and place the every 24″ on center. Use rafter ties to lock the trusses into place tightly. Use a spirit level to plumb the trusses before securing them into place tightly.
Fit T1-11 siding panels to the gable ends. Mark the cut lines on the panels and then lock them into place with 6d nails. Leave no gaps between the panels.
Fit 3/4″ plywood sheets to the roof of the shed. Cut the sheets at the right dimensions, as shown in the diagram. Align the edges with attention and leave no gaps between them. Insert 1 5/8″ screws every 8″ along the rafters.
Fit the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the other side of the roof.
Fit 1/2″ plywood sheets to the porch ceiling. Align the edges with attention and leave no gaps between the sheets. Insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the trusses, for a professional bond.
Fit the 1×8 lumber for the roof trims and 1×6 lumber for the porch trims. Make the angle cuts with a miter saw and then lock them into place tightly with 2″ nails, every 8″ along the framing.
Fit the 1×8 trim to the back of the shed and the 1×6 trim to the front of the shed (the one with the porch).
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.
I have lots of other shed projects on the site so I recommend you to browse through all alternatives before starting the building project. See all my shed projects HERE. Moreover, check out PART 1 of the shed, so you learn how to build the frame of the shed. Check out PART 3 to learn how to build the double side doors, the front door and how to fit the decorative trims.
