12×24 Lean to Shed Roof Plans

Ovidiu 1 GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 12×24 shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the storage shed project, where I show you how to build the lean to roof and to make and attach the double doors. 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 lean to roof project, you need to build the rafters from 2×6 lumber. Therefore, mark the cut lines on the beams and then get the job done with a saw. Make sure you take accurate measurements, otherwise the rafters won’t fit into place tightly.

Fit the rafters to the top of the shed. Place the rafters equally spaced, every 16″ center. Use rafter ties to lock the rafters into place tightly.

Side supports for the lean to roof

Check if the corners are square. Attach the T1-11 siding sheets and insert 1 1/4″ nails to secure the panels into place tightly.

Fitting the door jambs
