This step by step diy project is about 10×24 gable shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the wood storage shed project, where I show you how to build the gable roof. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration. Remember that you need to select the site for the shed with attention and that you have to comply with a few legal regulations.
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 10×24 Gable Shed Roof
The first step of the shed roof project is to build the rafters from 2×4 lumber. Make the angle cuts to the rafters using a miter saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper.
Use 2×4 lumber for the bottom rafters. Make the angle cuts to both ends of the rafters, as shown in the diagrams.
Use 2×4 lumber for the middle support. Make 22.5 degree cuts to the top of the support and fit it to the trusses. Fit metal plates over the joints to assemble the truss together tightly.
Fit the trusses to the top of the storage shed frame. Place the trusses every 16″ on center. Use a spirit level to plumb the trusses and fit rafter ties to secure them to the top plates. The rafter ties will lock the trusses into place tightly.
Use T1-11 siding for the gable shed panels. Cut the panels to the right size and shape and then secure them into place with 6-8d nails. Align the edges flush and insert the nails every 8″.
Cut the roof sheets from 1/2″ plywood. Align the edges flush and then insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the rafters, so you lock them into place tightly. Alight the edges flush and leave no gaps between the sheets, for a professional result.
Use 1×6 lumber for the side roof trims. Make the angle cuts with a miter saw. Use 2″ brad nails to secure the trims into place tightly.
Fit the 1×6 trims to the front and back of the roof. Align the edges flush and insert 2″ nails, so you secure the trims into place tightly. The trims are easy to install and it will add unique appeal to the shed.
Cover the roof of the shed with tar paper and then install the asphalt shingles. Use drip edges to make sure the roof is waterproof.
Use 2×4 lumber around the side door opening. Secure the jambs into place with 2 1/2″ screws.
Use 2×4 lumber for the frame of the side wall. Drill pocket holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to assemble the frame of the door. Use 2″ nails and glue to secure the shed door panel to the frame, every 8″ along the framing.
Fit the door to the side wall of the shed. Use hinges to secure the door to the jambs. Attach a latch so you can lock the door into place tightly.
Fit the trims to the sides of the shed. Install the PVC shed window and then attach the trims.
Fit the 2×4 jambs around the double door opening. Align the edges flush and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock jambs into place tightly, every 8″.
Assemble the double doors in the same manner described above.
Fit the doors to the front of the storage shed. Attach hinges to secure the doors to the jambs. Install the latch to lock the doors tightly.
Attach the 1×4 trims to the front of the shed. Align the edges flush and insert 2″ nails, every 8″ along the framing.
You should take a look over PART 1 of the project, where I show you how to build the frame of the 10×24 garden shed. If you like the design, this shed is the ideal choice, because it will help you keep the firewood dry and well stacked.
