4×4 Firewood Shed Roof Plans

Julian 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy woodworking project is about wood storage shed roof plans. The project features instructions for building the roof for the 4×4 saltbox shed. This is the second part of the firewood shed project, so make sure you take a look over the first part to learn more about building the frame. Make sure you check out the rest of plans to see alternatives and more projects for your garden.

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.

Building a saltbox firewood shed roof

Building the side walls

Building the side walls

First of all you need to build the side walls. You can use plywood or T1-11 siding. Mark the cut lines on the sheets and get the job done with a circular saw. Align the edges and secure the sheet into place by inserting 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the studs.

Attaching the back wall

Cut the back wall and secure it to the studs with 1 5/8″ screws/nails, every 8″.

Building the front wall

Building the front wall

When it comes to the front wall, you need to make more cuts, as you need to create the opening. Mark the cut lines and use a sharp saw to make the cuts. Smooth the edges with sandpaper for a professional result. Make some notches to the top of the sheet, in order to fit around the front rafters.

Cover the roof with tar paper. Use staples to secure the tar paper into place. Next, you should install asphalt shingles to the roof, starting from the bottom up to the top. Install a ridge cap to waterproof everything in a professional manner.
