Outdoor Field Shelter Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about free 12×10 outdoor filed shelter plans. If you want to shelter the cattle while on the field, you should pay attention to these free instructions and diagrams. 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 an outdoor field shelter

Front wall - frame

Front wall – frame

Build the front wall from 2×4 lumber. Cut the plates and the studs at the right dimensions and then lay them on a level surface. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs and make sure the corners are square. Use 2×6 lumber and 1/2″ plywood for the double header. You can adjust the size of the door opening to suit your needs.

Side wall - frames

Side wall – frames

Build the side wall frames from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs every 24″ on center. Place double studs to both ends of the walls and make sure the corners are square.

Building the back wall - frame

Building the back wall – frame

Build the back wall for the shed in the same manner described above. Drill pilot holes through the plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs every 24″ on center.

Assembling the shelter frame

Assembling the shelter frame

After assembling the shed wall frames, you need to lock them together tightly. Lay 4×4 skids on the ground so you lift the shelter a few inches from the ground and so you can move it easily from one location to another. Align the edges and make sure the corners are square. Drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock the walls together and to the skids.

Side siding sheets

Side siding sheets

Attach the 4’x8′ T1-11 siding to the side walls of the shelter. Leave 1 1/2″ from the top edge to the sheets. Insert 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the framing. Leave no gaps between the sheets, for a professional result.

Front siding sheets

Front siding sheets

Fit the siding sheets to the front of the shed, as well. Cut the sheets so you can fit them around the door opening. Align the edges flush and insert 6-8d nails, every 8″ along the framing.

Back siding sheets

Back siding sheets

Fit the siding sheets to the back of the shed. Use 6-8d nails to lock the sheets into place. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a professional result.
