14×16 Lean to Shed Roof Plans

This step by step diy project is about 14×16 lean to shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the lean to shed project, where I show you how to build the rafters and hot to fit the roof trims. This shed ha a small slope, so I recommend you to read the local codes to make sure it complies with the local codes. 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 14×16 Lean to Shed Roof

Rafters

Rafters

Build the rafters for the shed from 2×6 lumber. Cut the rafters at the right dimensions and angles using a saw. Lay the rafters on a level surface and align the edges with attention.

Fitting the rafters

Fitting the rafters

Fit the trusses to the top of the shed, making sure you place them every 24″ on center. Use rafter ties to lock the trusses into place tightly. Align everything with attention, for a professional result.

Lean to side supports

Lean to side supports

Fit the 2×4 supports to the sides of the lean to shed, as shown in the diagram. Cut the supports at the right dimensions and angles and drill pocket holes at both ends. Use 2 1/2″ screws to lock the supports into place tightly.

Fitting the lean to end panels

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.

Cut the sheets for the roof from 3/4″ plywood and then fit them to the top of the shed. Align the edges with attention, drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the rafters. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.

Roof trims

Roof trims

Fit the 1×8 trims to the sides of the roof. Align the trims with attention and insert 2″ nails. Fit the 1×8 trims to the front and back of the roof. Align the edges and insert 2″ nails, every 8″ along the framing.
