6×16 Lean to Shed Plans

Ovidiu 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 6×16 lean to storage shed shed plans. I have designed this wide shed with double front doors, so you can store your sports gear and lots of garden tools. This shed has a lean to roof and a simple design, so you can match it with any house styling. Make sure you check the local codes and make adjustments to the plans, if required. 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 6×16 lean to shed

Floor frame

Floor frame

The first step of the project is to build the floor frame. Cut the joists from 2×6 lumber and then lay them on a level surface. Drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular components. Place the joists every 16″ on center.

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 area properly. Fit the 4×4 skids and then attach the floor frame. Align the edges and then attach rafter ties to lock them together tightly.

Fiting the floor sheets

Fitting the floor sheets

Fit the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the floor of the shed. Align the edges and then insert 1 5/8″ screws , every 8″, along the framing.

Back wall frame

Back wall frame

Continue the project by assembling the back wall for the shed. Cut all the components from 2×4 lumber 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.

Top back wall frame

Top back wall frame

Build the top frame for the back wall. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs.

Side wall frame

Side wall frame

Build the frame for the back wall from 2×4 lumber. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber at the right dimensions. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Make sure the corners are square and place the studs every 16″ on center.

Front wall frame

Front wall frame

Use 2×4 lumber for the front wall frame. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush. Build a double header for the door from 2×4 lumber and 1/2″ plywood. You can easily adjust the size of the double doors.

Assembling the shed frame

Assembling the shed frame

Fit the front and the back wall frames to the shed floor. Align the edges with attention and plumb the walls with a spirit level. Make sure the corners are square and drill pilot holes through the bottom plates. Insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock the wall frames into place tightly. Fit the side walls frames, drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly. Moreover, you need to lock the adjacent walls together tightly, by using 2 1/2″ screws.

Front wall siding

Front wall siding

Attach T1-11 siding sheets to the front of the shed. Align the edges with attention and insert 6d nails, every 8″ along the framing. As you can see in the diagram, you need to place the siding sheets around the door opening.

Fitting the side wall panels

Fitting the side wall panels

Fit T1-11 siding sheets to the sides of the shed, as well. Align the edges with attention and then insert 6d nails, every 8″ along the framing. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.

Back wall panels

Back wall panels

Fit the sheets to the back wall, as well. Use the same techniques described above, to lock the sheets into place tightly.
