5×10 Lean to Shed Roof Plans

by Ovidiu

 

This step by step diy project is about 5×10 lean to roof plans. This is PART 2 of the free 5×10 lean shed plans, where I show you how to build the lean to roof and how to attach the siding sheets. Make sure you check the local codes and make adjustments to the plans, if required. 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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

Building a 5×10 lean to shed roof

Top back wall frame

Top back wall frame

The first step of the project is to build the top frame for the shed. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber at the dimensions shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs every 16″ on center, for a professional result.
