10×24 Gambrel Shed Plans

Ovidiu 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 10×24 gambrel shed plans. I have designed this large shed with a gambrel roof, so you can store tools, furniture and other items. In addition, you can easily add a loft to the shed to add even more space for storage. Make sure you read the local codes and make adjustments if necessary.  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.

Building a 10×24 garden shed

Floor frame - 10x24 shed

Floor frame – 10×24 shed

First of all, you have to assemble the floor frame. Cut the components from 2×6 or 2×8 lumber at the dimensions shown in the plans. Drill pilot holes through the long joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular components. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges with attention before inserting the screws. Place the joists every 16″ on center.

Fitting the skids

Fitting the skids

Next, fit the 4×4 skids under the floor frame. Use rafter ties to secure the skids to the floor frame. The skids will lift the floor frame from the ground, and it will protect the components from the elements. Alternatively, you can pour footings and use posts to set the floor frame perfectly straight and distanced from the ground.

Floor sheets - 10x24 shed

Next, attach the 3/4″ plywood panels to the floor frame. Align the edges and leave no gaps between the panels for a professional result. Drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws every 8″ along the joists. I recommend you to invest in tongue and groove plywood because there will be no gaps between the sheets.

Side wall frame

Side wall frame

We will build the 24′ long side walls in two sections, because they are more manageable like that. Start by cutting all the components from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ galvanized screws into the studs. Make sure you place the place the studs spaced as shown in the plans, otherwise you won’t be able to install the siding panels. Place the studs every 16″ on center.

Build two frames for the plain side wall.

Next ,we will build Section A of the opposite side wall. This wall frame has a 24″x36″ opening for a shed window.

Side wall with door frame

Build the other section for the side wall, using the same techniques and dimensions shown above. This wall section features a door opening and a window opening. Remember that you can easily adjust the plans and make them suit your needs. For example you can add windows to both sides of the shed.

Front wall frame - 10x24 shed

Front wall frame – 10×24 shed

Use 2×4 lumber for the front wall. Use 2×6 lumber for the double header (sandwich a piece of 1/2″ plywood between the two pieces of 2×6 lumber). Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Measure the diagonals for the wall and also check if the corners are square.

Back wall frame - 10x24 shed

Back wall frame – 10×24 shed

Build the back wall, as well.

Assembling the frame of the shed

Assembling the frame of the shed

After assembling the sections for the barn shed, you need to fit them to the floor, as shown in the plans. Plumb the side walls with a spirit level and align the bottom plate to the floor frame. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the floor of the shed.

Lock the adjacent walls together tightly and lock them together with 3 1/2″ screws. Fit the front and the back wall frames to the shed. Align the edges flush and lock them together tightly with screws. Make sure the corners are square.

Top plates for the side wall frames

After assembling the wall frames, you need to fit the plates to the top of the shed. Use 2 1/2″ screws to secure the plates into place tightly. Drill pilot holes to prevent the wood from splitting.

Side wall siding panels - 10x24 shed

Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the side of the barn shed. Align the edges, leave no gaps and insert 6d nails, every 8″ along the framing.
