When you design a custom shed, you get a building that you can use for whatever you want, but you need to be careful to include all of the customizations that you need during the design process.  You want your shed to be ready to go whenever it is delivered.
Every set of plans that we offer includes every detail that you need to construct a high quality, beautiful structure that you will enjoy for years to come, while saving considerable time and money and using only basic, readily available tools. Building the roof is maybe the most challenging part of this project, as you need to be very precise. Building a roof for a large shed is not as difficult as it might seem at first glance, provided you use the right plans and techniques. Top Tip: Read carefully the other parts of this project, to learn how to build a large shed, from the very beginning up to installing the shingles and the door. Make sure you follow us on Facebook to be the first that gets our latest plans and for some other exclusive content. Also, follow us on Pinterest to get many ideas for your backyard from all the internet! Top Tip: Plumb the trusses with a spirit level and install the wooden blockings between the rafters.
Afterwards, install the roofing felt into place, starting from the bottom of the roof up to the top. Top Tip: As the last row of ridge caps have the tacks exposed to water, you need to cover them with roofing tar, to prevent them from rusting.


If you have installed the shingles properly, as well as the rest of the roof, your shed should be water-roof. After assembling the frame of the shed, you should continue the woodworking project by installing the trusses and fitting the roofing sheets. On addition, all the trusses should have the exact same size and shape, otherwise the roof of the large shed won’t have a neat appearance.
As opposed to other projects, when building the trusses, you should make sure all the components are perfectly equal. In order to get the job done like a pro, you should make all the trusses equal, otherwise the roof won’t have a symmetrical look.
The easiest way to get the job done is by reversing the shingle tabs with the cuts up and to lock them into place with roofing tacks. Seal any gaps with silicone and check one last time if all the components are installed properly. Make sure you have covered all the surface of the roof with tar paper and shingles, if you want to avoid potential damages. Check out the rest of the project, to see all about building a door and fitting the rest of the trims.


If you want to see more outdoor plans, check out the rest of our step by step projects and follow the instructions to obtain a professional result. From our experience, we recommend you to build the rafters and the trusses on the ground and lift them to the top plates. If you want to install front and back overhangs or you just don’t want to build a gable roof, you should read the rest of our shed plans and choose the one that fit you needs perfectly. This aspects are essential for the project, otherwise the rood won’t have a neat look. After building the trusses, we recommend you to fit them on the top plates and to align them.
