This step by step diy project is about 10×24 gable shed plans. I have designed this large shed with a gable roof, so you can organize all you tools around the backyard. This shed features double front doors for an easy access and a side door with a window, so you can have light inside. Make sure you read the local codes and make adjustments if necessary. 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.

Building a 8×20 firewood shed
First of all you have to assemble the floor frame for the firewood shed. Use 2×6 lumber for the joists. As you can see in the shed diagrams, you need to drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular components. Make sure the corners are square and place the joists every 16″ on center. Align the edges flush.
Select the location for the shed and level the surface thoroughly. Use 4×4 lumber for skids and place them under floor frame Use rafter ties to secure the joists to the floor frame.
Use 3/4″ plywood for the floor of the shed. Place the plywood sheets to the floor frame and leave no gaps between them. You can invest in tongue and groove sheets for the best results. Insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the floor frame.
Next, we need to build the side wall frames for the large storage shed. Therefore, use 2×4 lumber for both the studs and plates. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Make sure the corners are square and place the studs every 16″ on center, just like you do in a house.
Next, we need to build the sections for the side wall that contains the door and the window. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Use 2×6 lumber for the double headers.
Continue the project by assembling the front wall for the storage shed. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws to assemble everything together tightly.
Assemble the back wall for the large storage shed, using the same techniques described above.
Lay the section wall frames to the sides of the shed. Align the edges, drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock the walls into place tightly. Plumb the wall frames with a spirit level and then lock the adjacent sections together tightly with 2 1/2″ screws.
After assembling the side wall frames, you need to fit the front and back wall frames. Align the edges flush and secure the walls into place by inserting screws through the bottom plates into the floor. Check if the corners are square and lock the adjacent walls together tightly with screws.
Use 5/8″ T1-11 siding sheets for the side walls. Align the edges flush and leave no gaps between the sheets. Insert 8d nails, every along the framing. Cut the openings for the window and for the door.
Fit the siding sheets to the other side of the storage shed.
Attach the T1-11 siding sheets to the back of the shed. Align the edges flush and insert 1 5/8″ screws every 8″ along the framing.
For the front wall, you need to make a few cuts around the opening. Align the edges and insert 8d nails, every 8″ along the framing.
This shed is built on a super sturdy framing so you can make sure it will withstand the elements in most areas. In addition, I have added double doors and a side door so you can have an easy access inside with small or large objects. The side window lets some natural light inside the shed. You can add several windows if you are going to use this as a workshop.
I have tons of shed plans with all kind of shapes and sizes. Please use the search function or see all the categories HERE.
The simple but elegant design of this shed makes it a perfect choice, because it will match the style of any property. Don’t forget to take a look over PART 2 of the project, so you learn how to build the gable roof for the shed. If you build these, I would love to see your project.
