4×16 Lean to Shed Plans

Ovidiu 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 4×16 storage shed plans. I have designed this narrow shed with a lean to roof so you can store tools and other items efficiently. This shed features two pairs of double doors on the front. Make sure you check the local building codes and make adjustments to comply with the local regulations. 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 4×16 shed with a lean to roof

Building the floor frame

Building the floor frame

First of all, you need to build the floor frame for the 4×16 shed. Cut the joists from 2×6 lumber at the dimensions shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular components. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges with attention.
