10×12 Field Shed Plans

This step by step diy project is about 10×12 field shed plans. I have designed this small run in shed with a gable roof and with generous front and back overhangs, so you can store items inside and protect them from the weather elements. However, I recommend you to 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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

How to build a 10×16 field shed



The first step of the project is to build the skids for the field shed. As you can easily see in the diagram, you need to make cuts at both ends of the beams. Use a saw to make 1 3/4″ deep cuts at both ends and then remove the excess with a chisel. Smooth the surface with sandpaper.

Select the location for the shed and level the surface thoroughly. Remove the vegetation layer and make sure you comply with the local building codes. Fit the skids on the location. Make sure the corners are square and then measure the diagonals. Drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock the skids together tightly. Alternatively, you can even anchor the skids to the ground, if you live in an area prone to strong winds.



Use 2×4 lumber for the side wall frames. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then lock them together with 3 1/2″ screws. Drill pilot holes before inserting the screws, to prevent the wood from splitting. Place the studs every 24″ on center and make sure the corners are square.



Build the back  wall of the shed from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Align the edges and make sure the corners are square. Alternatively, you could use framing nails and a framing gun.



Fit the 2×4 supports to the front of the shed. Drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws. Fit the 2×12 beam to the top of the supports, as shown in the diagram.

Fit the wall frames to the floor of the shed. Align the edges with attention and plumb the walls with a spirit level. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the floor. Lock the adjacent walls together tightly using 3 1/2″ screws.

Back wall siding sheets

Fit the T1-11 siding to the back wall of the shed. Align the edges flush and leave no gaps between the sheets. Insert 6d nails, every 8″ along the framing.

Attach the T1-11 siding sheets to the sides of the run in shed, as well. Use the same techniques described above to get a professional result.
