This step by step diy project is about 10×24 barn shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the storage shed project, where I show you everything you want to know about framing the barn shaped 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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

How to build a 10×24 barn shed roof
The first step of the project is to build the rafters from 2×6 lumber. Use a miter saw to make 22.5 degree cuts at both ends of the rafters.
Use a saw to make the birdmouths cuts to the base rafters.
Use 1/2″ plywood for the gussets. Mark the cut lines on the plywood sheet and get the job done with a saw. Fit the gussets over the joints and then lock them to the joints with 1 5/8″ screws.
Fit the trusses to the top of the barn shed. Fit the trusses every 16″ on center and then plumb them vertically with a spirit level. Use rafter ties to secure the trusses into place tightly.
Use 2×4 lumber for the gambrel end supports of the barn shed. Make 22.5 degree cuts to one end of the supports and drill pocket holes at both ends. Fit the supports into place and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them tightly.
Cut the sheets for the gambrel ends and then lock them to the supports with 6-8d nails, every 8″. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.
The next step of the project is to assemble the overhangs. Drill pilot holes through the rafters and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the blockings.
Fit the overhangs to the front and back of the barn shed. Align the edges with attention, drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock the overhangs to the shed frame.
Use 1/2″ plywood for the roof of the barn. Cut all the sheets to the right dimensions and then attach them to the roof of the barn shed. Use 1 5/8″ screws to secure the panels into place, every 8″ along the rafters.
Cover the roof of the shed with roofing felt, making sure the strips overlap at least 2″. Secure the tar paper to the plywood sheets with roofing staples. In addition, cut a large piece for the top ridge. Fit the side drip edges over the roofing felt, while the bottom drip edges should be fit under.
Read the instructions labeled on the asphalt shingle packs before installing them into place tightly. Start with the bottom left side of the roof and install them all the way to the top.
Use 2×4 lumber for the door jambs. Align the edges flush and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly. Insert the screws every 8″ along the frame.
Use 5/8″ T1-11 siding for the door panels. Use 2×4 lumber for the door frame. Drill pocket holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to assemble the frame for the doors. Attach the panels to the frames with 2″ nails and glue. Align the edges flush.
Fit the double doors to the opening and align the edges flush. Attach hinges to secure the doors into place tightly. Install a latch to lock the doors together tightly.
Attach the jambs around the side door.
Build the side wall for the barn shed, using the same techniques described above.
Fit the door to the opening and lock it to the jambs with hinges. Set a latch.
Fit the windows to the sides of the shed. Attach the decorative trims around the windows.
This barn shed is easy to build. Make sure you take a look over PART 1 of the shed project, to learn how to build the frame for the storage shed.
This is a shed that you’ll never regret building. This shed is built on a super sturdy 2×4 framing and it features double front doors for easy access. In addition, the shed also comes with a side door and two windows, so you can get a lot of light side the shelter.
