14×20 Gable Shed Roof Plans

This step by step diy project is about 14×20 shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the large storage shed project, where I show you how to build the gable roof for the project. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration. Remember that you need to select the site for the shed with attention and that you have to comply with a few legal regulations.

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.

How to build a 14×20 gable shed roof

Building the rafters

Building the rafters

The first step of the project is to build the rafters for the gable roof of the 14×20 shed. Use a miter saw to make angle cuts to both ends of the rafters. Mark the cut lines on the rafters and then get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with attention.

Bottom rafter

Build gussets for the joints from 1/2″ plywood. After cutting the gussets you need to lay them over the joints. Insert 1 1/4″ screws to lock the gussets into place tightly.

Fitting the trusses

Fit the trusses to the top of the shed. Plumb the trusses and then place them every 16″ on center. Use rafter ties to lock the trusses to the frame of the shed.
