12×16 Gambrel Shed Built in Cocoa Florida

This weeks shed was built in Cocoa, Florida!

It is an 12×16 Gambrel shed with the 6068 15 lite double door on the gable wall of the shed.

The owner/builder said: “I will say everyone that sees the shed loves it, and we like the red so much, we are going to … paint our house the same color. I actually built the shed like my house, wood frame, osb sheeting, then Hardie board siding. Took some extra work, but the end result was well worth it, now that it’s done anyway.”

This is a well built shed that used cement board siding and trim materials to build a barn shed that would look great in any backyard!

8×8 Lean To Shed Built In British Columbia

This 8×8 lean to shed, built in British Columbia.

The shed was challenging to build because of the sloping site and the need to build it up against an existing fence. To do this the wall was framed, siding installed and painted before it was stood up.

The owner/builder said: “…It’s turned out great so far, despite my limited skills!  It has been challenging, because of the uneven slope in my yard. But everything is level…”

“I’ve attached some photographs. As you can see from them, it was a bit of a challenging build because of the sharply sloping land where I built it. I think it turned out really well.  Many thanks for the excellent plans. They were easy to understand and comprehensive, allowing even a beginner like me to build a great shed.”

10×14 Gable Shed Plans Built In Bloomington, MN

This beautiful 10×14 Gable Shed was built in Bloomington, MN. I has had a few modifications. This is what the owner says about the shed.

Just thought I’d drop you a note and let you know that my son-in-law and I finished the shed. Started on 7/9 and finished on 8/8, so about 4 weeks.

10x14 Gable Shed Front

We made a few modifications to the plans. The biggest one is that we went with longer rafter tails as we needed to have the drip line be a certain distance away from the shed. This required us to use something different for the soffit, so we used the same rough sawn plywood that we used for the siding.  Another big change is that we went with full 8′ studs in the walls to give maximum interior height. As I’m sure you know, this means that the sidewalls had to be pieced together above the 8′ mark. We inserted blocking between the studs as a backing for the z-channel we used. We kept the upper level siding 1/8″ above the z-channel so it didn’t sit in water. We modified the end rafters so that we could put in a square gable vents. And since I tend to overbuild, all of the rafters were secured with hurricane ties (Simpson H10AZ) and I used twice as many A23′s as the [plans called for (including some to hold the end rafters in place). The floor is ¾” tongue and groove treated plywood. The building inspector said we had to tie the shed down at 4 points, so we used 30″ auger stakes at each corner and tied them with steel cable to stainless steel eye bolts running through the 2×8 rim joist. We also added windows to the doors (along with more internal framing for them) and a side window. The doors weighed a TON when we got them done, but they look great. Six 8″ heavy duty strap hinges handle the doors just fine. I used a locking t-handle system on the right door along with a spring bolt on top of the left door and a foot bolt at the bottom of the left door. The five foot wide, ¾” thick ramp is underpinned with 4 supports as my son-in-law intends to one day put a 4-wheeler in the shed.

8×12 Gable Shed Shed

This beautifully built shed was constructed in Virginia! This is what the owner said about his new shed:
“I thought I would send some pictures of the shed I built with your plans. The plans were great and the videos showed me every step of the process. I probably watched every video a dozen or more times. I added 10-3/4 inches to the wall height so that I didn’t have to cut the 8′ siding panels. The added height let me put in a nice loft and keep the shed organized. I definitely would not have been able to do it without the plans and videos. Everyone thinks it looks great and is impressed I built it from scr8x12-G-gable-shed-plansatch. I can’t say enough about how helpful the videos were. Thanks, Ramsey”
