14×10 Outdoor Pavilion Roof Plans

by Ovidiu

 

This step by step diy woodworking project is about a 14×10 outdoor pavilion roof plans. This is PART 2 of the wide compact backyard pavilion project, where I show you how to build the gable roof with a 6:12 pitch. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration. Premium Plans for this project available Here. Check out the Shop, as well, for full list of Premium Plans.

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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

How to build a 14×10 pavilion roof

Rafters-for-14×10-pavilion

Use 2×6 lumber for the rafters. Use a circular saw to make the 26.5 degree angle cuts to the boards. Smooth the edges with sandpaper. Make the notches to the rafters, as shown in the plans. Mark the lines before doing the cuts.

Fit the rafters to the top of the pavilion, using the information from the diagram. It is important to space the rafters properly (every 24″ on center), otherwise you won’t be able to attach the roofing sheets. Use rafters ties to lock the rafters to the beams. Insert 1 1/2″ structural screws for the rafter ties.

Use 2 ties for each rafter, one at each end.

Use 3/4″ plywood for the roof of the pavilion. Cut the sheets at the right dimensions and then lay them to the top of the pavilion. Leave no gaps between the sheets and then insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the rafters, so you can secure them into place tightly.

Fit 1×8 trims to the sides of the pavilion. Align the edges with attention and insert 2″ nails to lock them to the ends of the rafters.

Fit the 1×8 trims to the front and back of the pavilion. Make sure you make a 26.5 degree cut to one end of the gable end trims. Lock them into place with 2″ nails.

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. Therefore, fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper.

Apply a few coats of paint / stain to enhance the look of the pavilion and to protect them from the elements.

Don’t forget to take a look over PART 1 of the project, so you learn how to build the frame of the wide pavilion. This gazebo is easy to build and it won’t make a hole in your savings, because everything was optimized to be cost friendly.

You can adjust the height of the posts to suit your needs. In addition, you can even add railings to the sides of the pavilion, if you want to obtain a cozier atmosphere and feel the gentle hug of the wooden structure. In addition, you can even use metal roofing sheets, if you are willing to make some modifications to my plans.
