10×12 Gable Shed with Porch Roof Plans
This step by step diy project is about 10×12 gable shed with porch roof plans. This is PART 2 of the shed project, where I show you how to build the roof with the porch for the 10×12 shed. This shed is ideal for any backyard, if you want to get to make a bold statement and still have storage space. 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.

Building a 10×12 gable shed roof plans
Build the half of the rafters from 2×6 lumber. Mark the cut lines on the lumber and then get the job done with a circular saw. Set the miter saw at 33.7 degrees to make the angle cuts.
Building the trusses
Next, build the trusses for the shed with porch. As you can easily notice in the diagram, you need to build the rafters from 2×6 lumber. Cut the rafters at the right dimensions and angles using a saw. Use 2×4 lumber for the bottom rafters. Lay the rafters on a level surface and leave no gaps between the rafters.
Next, you need to build the supports that will reinforce the rigidity of the trusses. Fit 1/2″ plywood over the joints and align the edges. Insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock the gussets into place tightly.
Fitting the rafters
Fit the trusses to the top of the shed. Plumb the trusses vertically and place the every 24″ on center. Use rafter ties to lock the trusses into place tightly. Use a spirit level to plumb the trusses before securing them into place tightly.
Fitting the porch rafters
Next, you need to fit the porch rafters to the shed roof. Align the edges with attention and then toenail them into place tightly.
Gable end panels
Fit T1-11 siding panels to the gable ends. Mark the cut lines on the panels and then lock them into place with 6d nails. Leave no gaps between the panels.
Porch gable end panels
Fit the rest of the siding panels to the gable ends of the shed, as shown in the diagram.
Fit 1/2″ plywood sheets to the porch ceiling. Align the edges with attention and leave no gaps between the sheets. Insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the trusses, for a professional bond.
Cut the sheets for the roof from 3/4″ plywood and then fit them to the top of the shed. Align the edges with attention, drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the rafters.
Fit the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the other side of the roof, as shown in the diagram. Leave no gaps between the sheets and insert 1 5/8″ screws.
Fit the 1×8 lumber for the roof trims and 1×6 lumber for the porch trims. Make the angle cuts with a miter saw and then lock them into place tightly with 2″ nails, every 8″ along the framing.
Side roof trims
Fit the 1×8 trim to the back of the shed and the 1×6 trim to the front of the shed (the one with the porch).
Fitting the roofing
Cover the roof with tar paper and then install the asphalt shingles. Make sure you also install the appropriate drip edges, so you can seal the shed roof. Read the manufacturer’s instructions for a tight fit. Alternatively, you could also install metal sheets.
