8×16 Gable Shed Roof Plans
This step by step diy project is about 8×16 shed plans. This is PART 2 of the project where I show you how to build the gable roof for this storage garden shed. The roof has a great slope so you can use this shed in any area. If you live in an area with hurricanes, make sure you enhance the joints by installing proper ties. You can easily adjust the size of the overhangs. 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.
