14×18 Gable Shed Roof Plans

Ovidiu 2 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy woodworking project is about a 14×18 gable shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the large storage shed project, where I show you how to build the gable roof. This roof has a 5:12 pitch, but you can adjust it super easily. The shed features generous overhangs to protect the structure from rain. 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.

    I want to build a 22×26 carport using posts. I plan to enclose the back 6’ for storage. If you have anything like that I would appreciate it.
