This step by step diy project is about free run in shed roof plans. This is part 2 of the run in shed project, where I show you how to frame the roof and how to take care of the finishing touches. Don’t forget to check out PART 1 of the project to see how to build the frame of the shed. 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. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

Building a run in shed roof
Build the rafters for the shed from 2×6 lumber. Mark the cut lines on the beams and then get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper and repeat the process for the rest of the beams.
Fit the rafters to the ends of the run in shed. Cut the supports for the lean to ends and secure them into place with screws, after drilling pilot holes.
Cut the roof end panels from T1-11 5/8″ siding and lock them into place with 4d nails. Leave no gaps between the panels and align the edges flush.
Fit the rest of the rafters to the roof of the shed. Place the rafters every 24″ on center and lock them to the plates with metal hardware.
Fit the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the roof of the run in shed. Align the edges flush, drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws to secure them into place tightly. Leave no gaps between the sheets and make sure you insert the screws along the rafters, every 8″.
Use 1×6 or 2×6 lumber for the front and back roof trims and 2×6 lumber for the side trims. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to secure the trims into place, after aligning the edges flush.
Cover the roof of the shed with roofing felt, making sure the strips overlap at least 2″. Secure the tar paper to the plywood sheets with roofing staples. Fit the side drip edges over the roofing felt, while the bottom drip edges should be fit under. Afterwards, attach the asphalt shingles to the roof, starting with the left bottom side of the roof. Read the manufacturer’s instructions to understand how to install the shingles into place properly.
Seen from the back, the shed has a clean shape that can match the style of any backyard. If this project is too blunt for your tastes, then make sure you check out all my shed plans HERE.
You need to fill the holes with putty and then smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to enhance the look of the shed. You can also make other adjustments to this design to suit your needs.
This run in shed is ideal for storing your atv or snow mobile, or even a small trailer, as it has a nice large front opening for easy access. Check out part 1 of the project to learn more on how to build the frame for the shed.
