This step by step diy project is about 10×12 run in shed trims plans. This is PART 3 of the horse shed project, where I show you how to fit the kickboards and the decorative trims to the exterior of the structure. 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. 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 a few day.
Projects made from these plans
10×12 Run in shed trims
- F – 51 pieces of 1×8 oak – 48″ long KICKBOARDS
- K – 2 pieces of 1×4 lumber – 86 1/2″ long, 2 pieces – 94 1/2″ long, 2 pieces – 93″ long, 2 pieces – 85″ long TRIMS
Building trims for the 10×12 barn shed
Fit the 1×8 oak boards to the back interior of the run in shed. Cut the boards at 48″ and then secure them to the supports with 2″ nails.
Fit the 1×8 oak kickboards to the sides of the shed interior. Leave gaps between the boards and align them to the top supports. Insert 2″ nails to secure the boards to the supports.
Use 1×4 lumber for the side trims. Use a saw to cut the trims at the right size and angle and then secure them to the sides of the shed. Use 2″ nails to secure the trims to the shed.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the front of the shed, as well. Align the edges and use 2″ nails.
Fit the trims to the back of the 10×12 run in shed. Align the edges with attention and insert 2″ nails to secure the trims into place.
Last but not least, you need take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to the components, so you can protect them from decay and so you can enhance the look of the shelter. Check out PART 1 and PART 2 of the shed, so you can learn everything you need to know about building the walls and roof for the shed.
