This step by step diy project is about 12×16 hip roof shed plans. This is PART 2 of the shed project where I show you how to build the hip roof structure for the 12×16 shed. I show you all you need to know about framing a beautiful hip roof. If you want a shed with a hip roof to match your house design check out my free instructions. Make sure you read the local codes so you can comply with the legal requirements. 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.
