Barn Shed with Porch Plans

Julian 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about barn shed with porch plans. I have designed this 10×16 shed with a 8×16 deck attached to the construction. This shed has a gambrel roof and a double front door, as well a side door that opens to the porch. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration. Remember that you need to select the site for the shed with attention and that you have to comply with a few legal regulations.

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 gambrel shed with porch

building-the-floor-frame

Building-the-floor-frame

The first step of the project is to build the floor frame for the barn shed. Therefore, cut the joists from 2×6 lumber. Align everything with attention, making sure you place the joists every 16″ on center. Drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert 3 1/2″ screw into the regular joists.

fitting-the-skids

Fitting-the-skids

Attach the 6×6 skids to the floor frame, as shown in the plans. Use metal connectors and screws to lock the skids to the floor frame.

Attaching-the-floor

The next step of the project is to attach the 3/4″ tongue and groove plywood sheets to the floor frame. Align the edges flush and insert 8″ screws through the sheets into the floor. Make sure the head of the screws is flush with surface. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a neat result.

side-wall

Side-wall

Frame the side walls for the barn shed from 2×4 lumber. Cut the components at the right dimensions. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws or 16d nails into the studs. Place the studs every 16″ on center.

side-wall-with-door

Side-wall-with-door

Frame the opposite side wall from 2×4 lumber, as well. As you can easily notice in the diagram, you should frame a door opening, for easy access from and to the porch. Notice the double 2×6 header, as well as the double side studs.

fitting-the-side-walls

Fitting-the-side-walls

After framing the side walls, you need to lift them and set them into place to the shed floor. Use a spirit level to plumb the walls and lock them temporarily into place with 2×4 supports. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the floor.

building-the-front-wall

Building-the-front-wall

Frame the front wall for the barn shed using the information from my free plans. As you can notice I designed this project so you can have 6′ double doors for access to the inside of the shed. Frame the front wall using 2×6 lumber for the double header.

building-the-back-wall

Building-the-back-wall

Continue the backyard project by framing the back wall. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber, using the information from the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws or 16d nails into the studs.

assembling-the-shed-frame

Assembling-the-shed-frame

Fit the front and back walls to the shed floor, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the floor. In addition, I recommend you to lock the adjacent walls together with 3 1/2″ screws.

rafters

Rafters

Frame the trusses for the barn shed from 2×4 lumber. Make 22.5 degree cuts to both ends of the rafters, using a miter saw.

fitting-the-gussets

Fitting-the-gussets

Lay the rafters on a level surface and then cut 1/2″ plywood gussets for reinforcing the joints. Align everything with attention and insert 1 1/2″ screws to lock everything tightly.

fitting-the-trusses

Fitting-the-trusses

Fit the trusses to the top of the shed, making sure you place them every 16″ on center. Use a spirit level to plumb the trusses then secure them into place with 3 1/2″ screws and rafter ties.

barn-shed-siding-side-wall-with-door

Barn-shed-siding-side-wall-with-door

Attach the T1-11 siding panels to the side wall of the shed. Make a few cuts to the panel that goes around the door opening. Use 8d nails to secure the sheets to the framing, every 8″.

back-wall-siding

Back-wall-siding

Attach the siding panels to the back wall of the shed. Leave no gaps between the components, for a neat result.

front-wall-siding

Front-wall-siding

Attach the 5/8″ T1-11 siding sheets to the front wall of the shed. Make cuts so the sheets can go around the opening.

fitting-the-side-siding-panels

Fitting-the-side-siding-panels

Attach the siding panels to the opposite side wall, as well. Use 8d nails to secure the sheets into place.
