14×16 Pavilion Lean to Roof Plans

This step by step diy woodworking project is about a 14×16 pavilion lean to roof plans. This is PART 2 of the rectangular pavilion project, where I show you how to build the slanted roof. This roof has a 3:12 pitch, but you can adjust it super easily. You can play with the roof pitch to suit your needs. 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.

How to build a 14×16 lean to pavilion roof

Rafters---14x16-shelter

Rafters—14×16-shelter

Use 2×10 lumber for the rafters. Mark the cut lines to the rafters and then get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper. Make the birdsmouth notches into the rafters, so you can fit them into place tightly.

Decorative-cuts---rafters

Decorative-cuts—rafters

Make the 45 degree cuts to both ends of the rafters using a saw. We need to make these cuts so we install narrower roof trims. If you don’t make these cuts, you will need to install 1×12 roof trims.

Fit the rafters to the top of the pavilion, using the information from the diagram. It is important to space the rafters properly (every 16″ on center), otherwise you won’t be able to attach the roofing sheets. Use hurricane rafters ties and 1 1/2″ structural screws, to lock the beams into place.

Use 1/2″ 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 1×6 trims to the sides of the pavilion. Align the edges with attention and insert 2″ nails to lock them into place tightly.

Side-roof-trims

Side-roof-trims

Fit the 1×6 trims to the front and back of the pavilion. Make the angle cuts to the trims before locking them into place with 2″ nails.

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 roof. Read the manufacturer’s instructions for a tight fit.

Fill the holes with wood putty and let them dry out for a few hours. Smooth the surface with 100-200 grit sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth. Apply a few coats of stain or paint to enhance the look of the pavilion.
