4×6 Firewood Shed Plans – Part 2

Ovidiu 0 GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 4×6 1 cord firewood shed roof plans. This is PART 2 of the small firewood shed project, where I show you how to build lean to roof and how to attach the side wall panels. 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. Premium Plans for this project available in the Shop.

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.

How to build a 4×6 wood shed roof

Rafters

Rafters

Use 2×6 lumber for the rafters. Mark the cut lines on the beams and then get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges flush. You need the birdsmouth cuts to lock the rafters into place easily.

Fitting the rafters

Fitting the rafters

Fit the rafters to the support beams. Place the supports every 16″ on center. Use rafter ties and 1 1/2″ structural screws to secure the rafters into place tightly.

Fitting the purlins

Fitting the purlins

Fit the 1×4 purlins to the top of the shed. Place the purlins every 16″ on center. Use 1 5/8″ screws to secure the slats to the rafters, after drilling pilot holes.

Fitting the front and back roof trims

Fitting the front and back roof trims

Attach the 1×4 trims to the front and to the back of the shed roof. Align the edges flush, drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws, to lock them into place tightly.

Fitting the roofing

Fitting the roofing

Next, attach the metal roof sheets to the top of the firewood shed. Align the edges and secure the sheets to the purlins with 3/4″ roofing screws, or the size recommended for the roofing sheets you get.
