16×24 Lean to Shed Roof Plans

Ovidiu 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 16×24 lean to shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the large shed plans, where I show you how to build the lean to roof. This storage shed is ideal if you want to save space in your backyard and if you have many items to store. 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.

Front wall siding sheets

Front wall siding sheets

Attach T1-11 siding sheets to the front wall of the storage shed. Cut the sheets at the right dimensions and shape. Align the edges with attention and secure the sheets into place tightly with 6d nails, every 8″ along the framing. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.

Back wall siding sheets

Back wall siding sheets

Continue by attaching the T1-11 siding sheets to the back of the shed. Cut the sheets at the dimensions shown in the plans and then attach them into place with 6d nails, every 8″ along the framing. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.

Side siding sheets

Last but not least, you need to take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain over the components to protect the shed from the weather elements and to enhance the look of the shed.

I have lots of other shed projects on the site so I recommend you to browse through all alternatives before starting the building project. See all my shed projects HERE. Moreover, check out PART 1 of the shed, so you learn how to build the frame of the shed. Check out PART 3 of the shed project, so you learn how to build the double doors.
