10×24 Gable Shed Roof Plans

Ovidiu 3 GapDice RANDOM PLAN

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.

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.
