The plan set shows all the timbers you’ll need to use if you wish to do boards for the first floor deck and roof.
Where each timber is shown on a page, it is shown with all four sides and both ends so that you can see all the locations of all the joints and housings. There are many details such as, roof plan, brace detail, eave detail, floor joist detail, post tenon detail, ridge detail, and tie beam tenon detail. There are single stick drawings for each long sill, each cross sill, the tying joist, and a regular floor joist.
There are single stick drawings for each post in each bent, and each tie beam in each bent, one for the brace, each plate, one for the north side rafters, and one for the south side rafters. Our goal is not to simply inspire you to build a timber frame but to also give you the information and resources to make the timber frame construction process easier and more enjoyable.

Top Tip: Align the joists, making sure the diagonals of the floor are equal, before driving in the wood screws.


Install the tongue and groove sheets as in the image, otherwise the floor won’t provide enough support to store heavy items.
The double top plate will increase the rigidity of the outdoor shed, if it is built properly. Continue with the back wall, in the same manner described above, except for the door opening.
After building the walls on a level surface, you have to install them into position on top of the floor.
Next, assemble the side walls of the shed, using the same woodworking techniques described above. Top Tip: Make sure the corners of the frame are right angled, using a good carpentry square. Building the roof of the shed is pretty much a straight-forward job, if you assemble the trusses on the ground.
Afterwards, lift the trusses and install them into place, by driving 4” screws trough the bottom rafter in the top plates of the outdoor shed. In order to give your shed a nice appearance, as well as to protect the walls from rot, you should  install a 10” front and a back overhang. You can copy a page to take out to your workshop and use to make notes, keeping the original for future reference. Contact the seller- opens in a new window or tab and request a shipping method to your location. Building a shed in your backyard is a great project, as it is a great opportunity to learn new carpentry techniques, as well as to create a place where you could store garden tools or outdoor furniture. Therefore, you should choose the plans that fit your needs, taste and budget, as there are many options available. Cut the wooden components only after measuring them several times, in order to avoid costly mistakes. Make sure the top plates are perfectly horizontal, otherwise the roof won’t be symmetrical.
Irrespective of your choice, make sure the blade of the saw has fine teeth, to prevent the edges from damaging.


In order to get the job quickly and to drain the water properly, we recommend you to make the pitch of the roof about 30?. Cut the ends of the angled rafters at 30?, while the ends of the bottom rafters should be cut at 60?.
Plumb every truss before installing it into place, otherwise you won’t be able to attach the roofing sheets.
Sand the wooden surfaces with 120 grit sandpaper, before applying primer and several coats of paint to the siding and studs. If you want to see more outdoor plans, we recommend you to check out the rest of our step by step projects.
One page has the gable end door posts which makes it a complete set for every timber in the frame. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Moreover, if you pay attention to details and use quality materials, the outdoor shed would add character to your garden and increase the value of your property. Nevertheless, don’t forget to go to the local building department before beginning the construction, as there are certain legal requirements you have to comply with, according to the area you live in. Building the front wall of the shed is a simple task, if you pay attention to several aspects. Install a double header, as well as cripple studs, to provide support to the top of the window.
Hire a professional handyman to get the job done for you, if you don’t want to undertake the risk of such a complex project. As you can see in the image, you have to leave enough room for the door opening, as well as to reinforce the frame with a double header and with cripple studs.
