This step by step diy project is about 10×14 lean to shed plans. I have designed this simple to build shed so you can store bikes, tools, furniture and other items, while saving money. The lean to roof makes this construction ideal for a small backyard and for a tight budget. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration. Roof pitch is 3:12.
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.

Building a 10×14 lean to shed
First of all, you need to build the floor frame. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then lay them on a level surface. Drill pilot holes through the rim joists and then insert 3 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular beams. Place the joists every 16″ on center, as in the diagram. Alternatively, you can use joist hangers. Make sure the corners are square and the edges flush, before inserting the screws.
Select the location for the shed and remove the vegetation layer. Level the ground thoroughly and then fit the 4×4 skids under the floor frame. Align the edges and use rafter ties to secure the skids to the frame of the floor. Use a spirit level to make sure the frame is horizontal in all directions. Check out the local building codes before building the shed, so you make sure you comply with the requirements.
Use 3/4″ tongue and groove plywood sheets for the floor of the shed. Cut the sheets at the right dimensions, as shown in the diagram, and then lay them to the floor frame. Align the edges flush and insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the framing. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.
Building the shed wall frames
Continue the project by assembling the front wall frame. Use 2×4 lumber for the front wall frame. Use 2×4 lumber and 1/2″ plywood for the double header. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush. You can adjust the size of the door opening to suit your needs. Moreover, you can frame windows, if you want to have light inside the shed.
Build the frame for the back wall from 2×4 lumber. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber at the right dimensions. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Make sure the corners are square and place the studs every 16″ on center.
Build the side walls for the shed using the same techniques described above and the information from the diagram. Place the studs every 16″ on center.
Assembling the shed framing
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. Check if the corners are right-angled, for a professional result.
Assemble the top wall frame for the front of the shed from 2×4 lumber. Take accurate measurements and then get the job done with a circular saw. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs every 16″ on center and make sure the corners are square.
Fit the small frame to the top of the front wall. Align the edges with attention and plumb it with a spirit level. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plate and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the bottom.
Fitting the siding sheets
Cut the T1-11 siding sheets at the right dimensions, as shown in the diagram. Fit T1-11 siding panels to the front of the shed. Align the sheet to the top plate of the side walls and then insert 2″ nails, every 8″ along the framing.
Then, attach the siding sheets to the back of the shed. Insert 2″ nails, every 8″ along the framing. You will use the cutout panel for the door.
If you have a tight backyard and you need storage space for tools, furniture and other items, this shed project is a good choice. The lean to roof makes it easy to build and very budget friendly.
Make sure you take a look over PART 2 and PART 3 of the project, so you learn how to build the lean to roof and how to build the decorative trims. I have lots of other shed projects on the site so I recommend you to browse through all alternatives before starting the building project. See all my shed projects HERE.

I’m looking for plans to build the Maxi Barn shed 10’x14′ with the doors on the 14′ side. Thank you
I don’t understand why you don’t have all the plans available with a “Premium” option. I would gladly buy these 10×14 plans just to have them in a PDF and “ad free”. As it is I’ve spent over an hour trying to figure out how to buy them. I give up! I wish you luck, I really do. You’ve done a lot of great work here, I just wish it was easier to put to use.
Premium plans require a lot of work and the sales aren’t great, so I cannot have them for all projects. You can still download the free plans: https://myoutdoorplans.com/faq/
I paid 4.99 for the pdf – I never received anything.. Is this all hoax
First of all the PDF is 7.99 and not 4.99 and secondly I checked and there is no order with your email or name. If you bought something it wasnt from me.
