Smokehouse Roof Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about wooden smokehouse roof plans. This is PART 2 of the smokehouse project, where I show you how to build the roof for the 4×4 wood smokehouse. 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.

As in the case of the previous components, make sure you only use untreated cedar for this building. Build the rafters from 2×4 lumber. Mark the cut lines on the 2x4s and then get the job done with a circular saw. Follow the instructions in the diagram for the right angle cuts.
