This step by step woodworking project is about outdoor firewood shed gable roof plans. Check out PART 2 of the firewood shed, where I show you how to build the gable roof. This firewood shed is sturdy but still easy to build in one weekend. 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 gable roof for a firewood shed
Build the supports for the ridge beam from 2×4 lumber. Use a saw to make the cuts to the boards.
Fit the 2×4 ridge beam to the top of the supports. Center the beam into place and then align the edges. Drill pilot holes and insert screws to lock it into place tightly.
Build the rafters from 2×4 lumber. Make a 30 degree cut to one end of the rafters.
Fit the rafters to the top of the shed. Place the rafters equally spaced and then lock them into place with 2 1/2″ screws.
Fit 1×4 slats to the top of the shed, so you can attach the polycarbonate into place. Use 1 5/8″ screws to lock the slats to the rafters.
Fit the polycarbonate sheets to the roof of the shed with appropriate screws.
