10×10 Gable Shed Roof Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about 10×10 shed gable roof plans. This is PART 2 of the shed project, where I show you how to build the gable roof for the storage shed. The shed comes with overhangs on all sides and with sturdy trusses. My plans come with step by step instructions and you can easily adjust all the dimensions to suit your needs. See my other DIY projects HERE.

We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

How to build a 10×10 gable shed roof

Building the rafters

Building the rafters

The first step of the project is to build the rafters for the trusses from 2×4 lumber. Make the angle cuts to the rafters using a miter saw, so you get accurate result. Lay the rafters on a level surface and align the edges flush. Leave no gaps between the edges.

Fitting the truss supports

Fitting the truss supports

Continue the project by making the supports for the trusses. Make angle cuts to the supports and then fit them to the trusses. Align the edges flush.

Fitting the gussets

Fitting the gussets

Use 1/2″ plywood for the gussets. Take accurate measurements and then make the cuts. Fit the gussets over the joints and then secure them to the rafters with 1 5/8″ screws.

Fitting the rafters

Fitting the rafters

Fit the trusses to the top of the shed. Place the trusses every 24″ on center, for a professional result. Use a spirit level to plumb the trusses and then secure them into place with rafter ties.

Gable end panels

Gable end panels

Use T1-11 siding for the gable end panels. Mark the cut lines over the panels and get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper for a neat result. Align the edges flush and insert 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the frame.

Building the overhangs

Building the overhangs

Assemble the overhangs from 2×4 rafters and 2×4 blockings. Drill pilot holes through the rafters and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the blockings. Place the blockings equally spaced for a professional result.

Fitting the overhangs

Fitting the overhangs

Fit the overhangs to the front and to the back of the shed. Align the edges flush, drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws.

Fitting the roofing sheets

Fitting the roofing sheets

Cut the roof sheets from 3/4″ plywood and then lay them over the rafters. Align the edges flush and leave no gaps between them. Drill pilot holes through the sheets and insert 1 5/8″ screws, every 8″ along the rafters. Fit 1×8 slats to the overhangs.

Side roof trims

Side roof trims

Attach the 1×6 trims to the sides of the roof. Align the edges flush and insert 2″ brad nails to secure the trims into place tightly.

Front and back roof trims

Front and back roof trims

Use 1×6 lumber for the front and back roof trims. Make angle cuts to the trims and then secure them into place with 2″ brad nails.

Fitting the roofing

Fitting the roofing

You could fit asphalt shingles to protect the shed, as it is a straight forward solution. Therefore, install roofing felt over the roofing sheets, making sure the strips overlap at least 2″. Secure the tar paper to the plywood sheets with roofing staples. Fit the side drip edges over the roofing felt, while the bottom drip edges should be fit under. Place a starting course at the bottom of the roof, before installing the asphalt shingles. Always read the manufacturing instructions before starting the installation, as there are several aspects that differ.

Smart Tip: The first course should star with a 3 tab shingle, the second course with a  2 1/2 tab , the third course with a 2 tab, the forth course with a 1 1/2 tab, the fifth course with a 1 tab, the sixth course with a 1/2 tab. Repeat the process from the beginning, starting with the seventh course. Don’t forget that the shingles should overhang from the drip edge about a 1/4″. In addition, secure the asphalt shingles to the roof decking with tacks.
