10×12 Hip Roof Construction Plans

This step by step diy project is about 10×12 hip roof shed plans. This is PART 2 of the shed project where I show you how to build the roof structure for the 10×12 hip shed. I show you all you need to know about framing a beautiful hip roof. The rafters are 16″ on center and made from 2x6s. Make sure you read the local codes so you can comply with the legal requirements. 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.

    I am looking for a plan for a 16 x 20 Shed with a hip roof ( 4:12 to 6:12 ). No snow load (Florida). 12″ overhang. One 60″w roll up overhead door. One 30″ exterior door. On skids.

    Other options not important

    Do you have anything like that?

    I’m trying to somewhat match it to the look of my home construction.

      I don’t have anything that large with a hip roof.
