16×24 Run In Shed Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about free 16×24 run in shed plans. I have designed this sturdy run in shed so you can shelter agricultural equipment, large items or even animals. Remember that you need to read the local building codes before selecting the right location for the shed and before building the shed. 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 16×24 loafing shed

Building the skids

Building the skids

The first step of the project is to build the skids for the 16×24 run in shed. You need to make half lap joints, so you can lock the skids together tightly. Make parallel cuts to both ends of the skids and then remove the excess with a chisel. Smooth the edges with sandpaper for a neat result.

Assembling the skids

Assembling the skids

Lay the skids on the selected location, making sure the corners are square. Drill pilot holes through the back skid and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the side skids.

Building the side walls

Building the side walls

Build the side walls for the 16×24 run in shed using 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the top and bottom plates and then insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs every 24″ on center, making sure the corners are square. Attach the double top plates to the side walls.

Building the back wall frame

Building the back wall frame

The next step of the project is to build the back wall for the loafing shed. Cut all the components at the right dimensions from 2×4 lumber. 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. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush.

Assembling the shed frame

Assembling the shed frame

Fit the walls to the skids, as shown in the diagram. Align the edges flush and use a spirit level to plumb the walls accurately. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the skids. Moreover, you need to lock the adjacent walls together tightly, by drilling pilot holes and inserting 3 1/2″ screws. Make sure the corners are square.

Side wall siding

Side wall siding

Fit the T1-11 siding sheets to the sides of the run in shed. Align the edges with attention and insert 6-8d nails along the framing, every 8″. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.

Back wall siding

Back wall siding

Fit the siding sheets to the back wall of the run in shed, using the same techniques described above.

Side lean to frames

Side lean to frames

Build the lean to side walls from 2×4 lumber. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then make the angle cuts, using the information from the diagram. 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.

Fitting the lean to side walls

Fitting the lean to side walls

Fit the lean to side walls to the top of the side walls. Use a spirit level to plumb the walls, drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the bellow walls. In addition, fit a 2×4 slat to the back of the loafing shed.
