6×14 Lean to Shed Roof Plans

Ovidiu 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 6×14 lean to shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the 6×14 shed plans, where I show you how to build the lean to roof and the front door. This storage shed is ideal if you have a small backyard, as you can build it next to the property line or to an already existing building. 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.

6×14 Lean to Shed Roof Plans

Front wall panels

Front wall panels

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.

Building the rafters

Building the rafters

Next, you need to build the rafters for the 6×12 lean to shed. Mark the cut lines on the 2×4 boards and then get the job done with a saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper so you get a professional result. Use a miter saw to make the angle cuts in a consistent manner.

Fitting the rafters

Fitting the rafters

Fit the rafters to the top of the shed structure, every 16″ on center. Use rafter ties to lock the trusses to the top plates tightly.

Back wall siding sheets

Back wall siding sheets

Use T1-11 siding sheets for the back wall. Mark the cut lines on the sheets and then get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with attention and then insert 2″ nails, every 8″ along the framing. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.

Side wall sheets

Side wall sheets

Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the side walls of the storage shed. Mark the cut lines on the sheets and get the job done with a saw. Use 6d nails, every 8″ along the framing.

Fitting the roof sheets

Fitting the roof sheets

Cut the sheets for the roof from 3/4″ plywood and then fit them to the top of the shed. Align the edges with attention, drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the rafters.

Side roof trims

Side roof trims

Cut the side roof trims from 2×6 lumber, as shown in the plans. Fit the trims to the sides of the shed roof. Align the edges with attention and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock the trims into place tightly.

Front and back roof trims

Front and back roof trims

Fit the 2×6 trims to the front and back of the roof. Align the edges with attention and then insert 3 1/2″ nails to lock them into place tightly.

Fitting the roofing

Fitting the roofing

Cover the roof with tar paper and then install the asphalt shingles. Make sure you also install the appropriate drip edges, so you can seal the shed roof. Read the manufacturer’s instructions for a tight fit.

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.
