14×16 Lean to Shed Plans

Ovidiu 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 14×16 lean to shed plans. I have designed lean to shed so you can store a lot of items, while using the space you’ve got in the garden. The pleasant design combined with an efficient utilization of the space, makes it the ideal choice for a homeowner. Make sure you check the local codes and make adjustments to the plans, if required. 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.

How to build a 14×16 lean to shed

Floor frame

Floor frame

The first step of the project is to build the floor frame. Cut the components from 2×6 lumber at the right dimensions. Place the joists every 16″ or 24″ on center, for a professional result. The 16″ spacing will allow you to store heavy items, while the 24″ spacing will help you save money. Check if the corners are are square, drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws.

Fitting the skids

Fitting the skids

Select the location for the shed and level the surface thoroughly. Remove the vegetation layer and make sure the location complies with the local codes. Fit the skids on the location. Place the floor frame and then use rafter ties to lock the skids to the frame.

Floor sheets

Floor sheets

Fit the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the floor frame and align the edges with attention. Insert 1 5/8″ screws every 8″ along the joists. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.

Back wall frame

Back wall frame

Build the back wall of the shed from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Align the edges and make sure the corners are square.

Front wall frame

Front wall frame

Build the front wall for the shed, using the information from the diagram. As you can see in the image, the wall has an opening for 6′ double doors. Use 2×6 lumber and 1/2″ plywood for the double header. Lock the double header into place with screws. Make sure the corners are square for a professional result.  I have also added a small 24″x32″ window to the wall, so you have some light inside the shed.

Other side wall frame

Other side wall frame

Continue the project by assembling the side wall frame. Use 2×4 lumber for the wall frame. Use 2×6 lumber for the double header. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush. Build a double header for the door from 2×4 lumber and 1/2″ plywood. You can adjust the size of the door opening to suit your needs.

Side wall frame

Side wall frame

Build the opposite side wall for the shed using the same techniques described above and the information from the diagram. Make sure you place the studs properly, otherwise you won’t be able to attach the siding panels.

Assembling the shed frame

Assembling the shed frame

Fit the wall frames to the floor of the shed. Align the edges with attention and plumb the walls with a spirit level. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the floor. Lock the adjacent walls together tightly using 3 1/2″ screws. Check if the corners are square and align the edges with attention.

Front wall panels

Front wall panels

Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the front of the storage shed. As you can see in the diagram, you need to make cuts so you can fit the panels around the large side opening. Use 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the framing.

Back wall panels

Back wall panels

Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the back of the shed. Use 2″ nails to secure the sheets into place, every 8″ along the frame. Align the edges with attention and leave no gaps between the components.

Other side wall siding panels

Other side wall siding panels

Fit the sheets to the side of the shed. As you can see in the diagram, you need to make the cuts so you create the door opening.

Side wall siding panels

Side wall siding panels

Fit the T1-11 siding panels to the back of the shed. Align the edges with attention and leave no gaps between the sheets. Insert 6-8d nails every 8″ along the framing.

Top front frame

Top front frame

Use 2×4 lumber to build the top frame for the front wall. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges with attention.

Fitting the front top frame

Fitting the front top frame

Fit the frame to the top of the front wall and align the edges with attention. Plumb the walls with a spirit level and drill pilot holes through the bottom plate. Insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock the frame into place tightly.
