14×20 Shed Plans

Ovidiu 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 14×20 shed shed plans. I have designed this large 14×20 storage shed with a gable roof, so you can finally have that beautiful workshop you have always dreamed about. This shed features double doors on the front and a side man door on the side. Make sure you comply with the local codes before staring the project. 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.

14×20 Shed Plans

Floor frame

Floor frame

First of all, you need to build the floor frame for the 14×20 shed. Cut the joists from 2×6 lumber at the dimensions shown in the diagram. Lay the joists on a level surface and then align the edges flush. Make sure the corners are square and then drill pilot holes through the rim joists. Insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock the components together tightly.

Fitting the skids

Fitting the skids

Select the location for the shed, making sure you comply with the local codes. Remove the vegetation layer and then level the surface with attention and then fit the 4×4 skids. Lay the floor frame and then use rafter ties to lock the components together tightly.

Fitting the floor sheets

Fitting the floor sheets

Lay the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the floor frame. Align the edges flush and leave no gaps between the components. Insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the framing. Make cuts to the 24″ plywood sheets.

Plain side wall frame

Plain side wall frame

Continue the projects by assembling the plain side wall. Cut all the components at the right dimensions and then lay them on a level surface. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs every 16″ on center and make sure the corners are square.

Front wall frame

Front wall frame

Use 2×4 lumber for the front wall. As you can see in the diagram the front wall features a large 8′ wide door opening, for an easy access to the interior. Moreover, use 2×6 lumber and 1/2″ plywood for the double headers. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws to secure the studs. You can adjust the size of the man door opening, to suit your needs.

Back wall frame

Back wall frame

Last but not least, you need to build the other side wall from 2×4 lumber, using the same techniques described above. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush.

Side wall with windows frame

Side wall with windows frame

Use 2×4 lumber for the other side wall frame, as well. Cut the components at the right dimensions, as shown in the diagram. Moreover, use 2×6 lumber and 1/2″ plywood for the double headers. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws to secure the studs. You can adjust the size of the man door opening, to suit your needs. In addition, this wall features two 24″x42″ window openings, so you have plenty of light inside the shed.

Assembling the frame of the shed

Assembling the frame of the shed

Fit the wall frames to the floor of the shed and align the edges flush. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the floor. Make sure the corners are square and reinforce the adjacent walls with 2 1/2″ screws.

Side wall with window - siding

Side wall with window – siding

Attach T1-11 siding sheets to the side wall of the shed. Align the edges with attention and insert 6d nails, every 8″ along the framing. Make sure you make the cuts, so you can fit the sheets around the door opening and window openings.
