8×10 Gable Shed – DIY Project


From Scot Haut,

Thanks for the plans. I really liked these. Very simple design. If I had it to do again I would bird mouth the trusses and have a bigger overhang. The plan calls for 3 bundles of shingles I ended up needing just a hair more. The 2×4 overhangs I did away with. I just used 1×4 trim boards.

Below I included my shopping list. I had a pad poured when I re did my driveway so my list includes NO FLOOR MATERIAL. I also borrowed a framing nailer from a friend so my shopping list doesn’t include the nails for that as well. I shot allot of framing nails. I did this over 6 weekend days (in autumn gets dark at 5) I had a helper for a few of those days.

I thought I could have done it alone but a helper REALLY makes it easier. Very proud of my shed and glad I did it myself rather than buying a junky metal one or a kit that includes way lighter duty lumber and still need to do the work. I have lots of saws and am pretty handy.
