10×12 Barn Shed Plans
This step by step diy project is about diy 10×12 barn shed plans. This barn shed is super easy to build and it provide a lot of storage space, while keeping the costs down. You can add a loft to the shed, if you want to enhance the storage space. Moreover, I have designed shed with many sizes so check them out, as well. 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.

How to build a 10×12 barn shed frame
Building the shed floor
The first step of the project is to build the floor frame for the 120×12 barn shed. Cut the joists for the shed using 2×6 lumber. Align the edges flush on the selected location for the shed. Align the edges flush, drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock the joists into place. Place the joists every 16″ on center for a professional result.
Fitting the skids
Fit the 4×4 skids to the location of the shed, placing them equally-spaced. Fit the floor frame to the skids and use rafter ties to lock them together tightly.
Fitting the shed floor
Use 3/4″ plywood sheets to the floor frame. Align the edges with attention, drill pilot holes and insert 15/8″ screws, every 8″ along the joists. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.
Front wall – Frame
Continue the project by assembling the front wall for the shed. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. In addition, you need to build the double header from 2×6 lumber. Fit 1/2″ plywood between the double headers. Lock them together with glue and 2 1/2″ screws. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges.
Back wall – Frame
Continue the project by assembling the back wall for the shed. Cut all the components at the right dimensions. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs every 24″ on center, for a professional result.
Side wall – Frame
Build the side walls for the shed using the techniques described above and the information from the diagram.
Assembling the shed frame
Fit the wall frames to the floor of the shed. Align the edges flush and plumb them with a spirit level. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the floor of the shed. Make sure the corners are square and lock the adjacent wall together with 3 1/2″ screws. Drill pilot holes before inserting the screws to prevent the wood from splitting.
Side wall – siding
Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the side walls of the barn shed. Align the edges flush and insert 6-8d nails to lock the sheets into place tightly. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.
Front wall – Siding
Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the front of the wall. Cut the sheets using the information from the diagram, so you can lock them into place around the door opening. Use 6-8d nails to secure the panels into place, every 8″ along the framing. Make sure you insert the panels 1 1/2″ from the top plates.
Back wall – Siding
Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the back of the 10×12 barn shed. Inset the sheets 1 1/2″ from the top plates. Leave no gaps between the sheets and secure them into place with 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the framing.
