2×4 Firewood Shed Roof Plans

This step by step diy project is about 2×4 firewood shed plans. This is PART 2 of the firewood shed project, where I show you how to build the roof. See the rest of my firewood shed free plans HERE. 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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

How to build a 2×4 wood shed

Fitting the ridge beam

Fitting the ridge beam

The first step of the project is to build and attach the ridge beam to the top of the firewood shed. Cut the supports and the beam from 2x4s. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the supports and then secure it into place with 2 1/2″ screws. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush. Use a spirit level to check if the supports and plumb and if the beam is perfectly horizontal.



Use 2×4 lumber for the rafters. Mark the cut lines on the beams and then get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper.

Fitting the rafters

Fitting the rafters

Fit the rafters to the top of the shed structure. Place the rafters equally spaced. Drill pilot holes and insert 4 1/2″ screws to secure the rafters into place tightly.



Fit 2x4s across the roof structure so you can support the corrugated metal sheets. Use 2 1/2″ screws to secure the slats to the rafters. Make sure the slats will have equal 8″ overhangs on both ends.

Fitting the roof sheets

Fitting the roof sheets

Cover the roof of the shed with metal corrugated sheets. Alternatively, you could go with 1/2″ plywood and asphalt shingles.
