2×4 Barn Display Case Plans – Part 2

Ovidiu 0 GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 2×4 barn shaped vegetable display case plans. This Part 2 of the barn shaped display case for veggies, where I show you how to build the gambrel roof and how to assemble the doors. I tried to keep things simple so you can build this with basic materials. This is not a fancy project, more like an utilitarian one. However, if you feel inspired, you can add your personal touch to the project and make it stand out.

It is essential to adjust the size of the shed to your needs. Work with attention and plan everything from the very beginning, if you want to get the job done as a professional from the very first attempt. In addition, we recommend you to take a look on the second part of the project, if you want to learn how to build the door and how to attach the siding.

2×4 Barn Display Case Roof

Rafters

Rafters

The first step of the project is to build the rafters for the barn display case. Use a miter saw to make 22.5 degree cuts at both ends of the rafters. You should also make the birds-mouth cuts to the base rafters. Use a circular saw to make the cuts, as shown in the diagram.

Gussets for trusses

Gussets for trusses

Use 1/2″ plywood for the gussets. Make the cuts to the gussets and then lay them over the truss joints. Leave no gaps between the rafters. Insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock the gussets over the rafters.

Fit the trusses to the top of the display box. Plumb the trusses with a spirit level and lock them into place with rafter ties.

Ridge beam

Ridge beam

Fit a piece of 2×2 lumber to the top of the barn roof. This will enhance the rigidity of the roof structure. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the ridge beam and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock it to the trusses.

Use 1/2″ plywood for the exterior panels. Use 6d nails and construction glue to secure the panel to the frame. Mark the cuts lines and get the job done with a circular saw. Make sure you cut the opening so you can fit the double doors, later on.

Back wall panel

Attach the panel to the back of the shed, as well. Align the edges flush and insert 6d nails to secure the panels into place.

Roof sheets

Roof sheets

Use 1/2″ plywood for the roof panels. Center the sheets to the gambrel roof so the front and back overhangs are equal. Use 1 5/8″ screws to lock the sheets to the trusses, every 8″.

Trims for gambrel roof

Next, we will build the double doors. Start by assembling the frame from 1x2s. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the vertical and middle components. Insert 1 1/4″ screws to secure the frame together. Align the edges flush and check if the corners are square.

Door glass panel

Door glass panel

Use clear polycarbonate for the door panel. Use construction glue to secure the panels to the door frame. Align the edges flush.

Fitting the double doors

Fitting the double doors

Fit the doors to the opening and secure them to the jambs with hinges. Use a latch to keep the doors shut.

Fill the holes with wood putty and let them dry out for a few hours. Smooth the surface with 100-220 grit sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to the components, to enhance the look of the project.
