12×16 Shed with Hip Roof Plans

This step by step diy project is about simple 12×16 shed with hip roof plans. I had lots of request for a 12×16 shed with a hip roof, so here is my take for this project. This shed features double 6′ doors to the front, two windows to the front and a side window. You can easily adjust the dimensions of the doors and windows. 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.
