Tie the opposing raking top plates [l] together with galvanized metal strap ties [p] (see fig.1). Once the frames are made, squared and braced, lift them upright onto the floor and nail them together at the corners. Because the wall frames were made and braced square and the floor is level, the frames will automatically be plumb (vertical). The information given below is for building a saltbox style shed, which is the most difficult to build. The first thing you will need to do is find a flat open area with a concrete floor so that you can lay out a 2x4 or 2x6 that is at least as long as your shed is wide.
Before building all your trusses needed, make sure after building your first truss that it actually will fit properly on the top plates. Starting at the bottom edge first, lay one of your 4' x 8' sheets of osb so that the bottom edge is flush with the truss ends.

Awesome 10x12 Barn Shed Dec 27, 15 10:41 AMSee how Jason built his very own 10x12 barn shed and had a great time doing it. In mid-August we spent another weekend working on the shed.This time we were able to get the eaves added and the roof sheathed. Nathan,We thought we would get two sheds built this year, one for my brother and one for my wife and I but we are just getting this one finished up before the weather turns. Distance is about 90 mi., takes just a little over two hours and we gain 3500ft in elevation. In mid-October my brother made it up to put some paint on the siding and prep some of the trim.If the weather cooperates we hope to finish the paint and trim this weekend.
Interesting how you used what looked like 2X6 on the rafters and curt the tail section on the overhang to a 2X4 from the birdmouth opening.
Make sure the 4x4's are pressure treated, you can set the 4x4's on concrete blocks like in the first picture or if you set the 4x4's directly on the ground make sure the joist are pressure treated as well. Use 2x6 for joist and you can set those 4x4's anywhere from flush to the outside ( which is no longer cantilevered ) to at the most 12" in.
Use 8' 2x4's sitting on the top plates and nailed securely to the side of the rafters, these will be your collar ties and will hold the whole thing together. I have worked with 4x4 pressure treated before making a pergola and they warp a good amount.
I have shed dormers on my house, and the studs for the sidewalls go down to the floor: I've seen designs where the studs end at the rafters: Can I cut the existing wall studs, "build out" the existing rafter by tacking one a couple of 2x4's (similar to a door header), and have the studs end on my rafter addendum? Originally Posted By iowa_hawkeyes: Do you want to open it up or just add a door? Ideally, open it up and finish it out as built-in shelving. Loads from the shed roof would be transferred to the rafters and not the floor joists if you remove the studs. Are the rafters adequate for the additional load?


The new project of make it extreme is the transformation of an old microwave oven into a brand new spot welder. The philosophy of this table is that anyone can bake whatever he wants and for as long as he needs to make his food. If you want to make a box that looks like a professional craftsman hand made it, but don't want to spend hours measuring and hand fitting, just follow these instructions and you'll not only impress your friends, you'll even impress yourself!All of us have made boxes of one type or another. Well Its so dry here I built a DIY humidifier the one with the bottle and the air stone you see all over the internet, but it sucked so bad It was intended for a much smaller environment. I built this guitar from wood I pulled from a dumpster, as the title suggests, and used mostly hand tools.
I had a whole set of 14.4 Volt cordless tools including flashlight, small circular saw and a drill. Living without closets and without a work room isn't easy, really don't like that I have a small room. You should know that a light box that can be used for a bunch of creative stuff, so let's get started!The video helps to understand the whole process.
How to make a simple, attractive DIY pallet bench - the aim is a (deliberately) rustic bench seat for your backyard, garden, courtyard etc. LED lights are more popular, since theirs advantages of high efficiency and long life spans. I decided to make this workbench out of 2x4's because I needed something stable and strong enough to take a lot of abuse.
I wanted to see if it was possible to build a box like this, with all its tight clearances, using mostly 2x4 material.I'm happy to say, while difficult, it can be done. This is an easy answer to an annoying problem: back cushions that get all slouchy and are scrunched down after someone gets up. Hello, a while ago, I saw an Instructable for a glass cutting jig, but it looked a bit limited in the choice of bottles it could cut,and in its stability. Does drilling in glass seem difficult?Do you have a project or craft that requires you to drill glass?With some basic tools and setup drilling glass is not that difficult. What you will need to do next is take measurements off your drawn out pieces and transfer them to 2x4s and go ahead and cut them so they can be used as a template for the rest of your truss construction.
For this saltbox truss you will need to cut 4 for each truss as shown in the picture below. After verifying that everything lines up correctly, you can make the rest of your trusses.At this point, you need to mark off truss locations on the top plate of each supporting wall. If you plan on putting on drip edge and felt paper to your roof do this now also, then cover your roof with shingles following manufacturers instructions. I can only get in there by boat and it is about a 2 hour trip one way so that'll make things interesting. I'm also going to use simpson ties on the rafters to connect the top ridge board and the top plates. There is not a project for entertaining, has three years of use on my roof for 4 people shower and dishwasher. Why should I pay almost $10 for a small piece of rubber and a handle?Well, I can make one with several sticks of Hot-Glue!In my experiments, A Rubber Mallet is even BETTER than a Wooden Mallet for Chisel-work. However, a few problems arose creating it such as the overheat, the weight and the decay due to external factors like the weather conditions. It's fun to take them apart, but not when you have to literally saw through the plastic, like I used to. Using basic principles of keeping a layer of air in between 2 layers of glass, I decided to use perspex as the indoor layer and keep that on our windows with magnetic strips. It is essentially a rotating peg board that you mount to the ceiling or the bottom of a cabinet (which is what I will show how to do).


He asked for a couple boxes to sit on the guest sign in table, one to hold a bottle of wine and the other would hold notes from friends and family attending the wedding. I did use two power tools, a drill and a dremel.It took me over a month to make, spending on average about 8-10 hours a day on it. I hooked up with a regular rabbit ear antenna and although the signal and quality are waaaay better that the analog ones, I couldn't get all the stations and some where a bit erratic. This is one of the most common parts to fail on a washer and it is a relatively easy repair most do-it-yourselfers can do. First the charger went, then the batteries died, and then before I could buy replacements the company then switched to the 18V format and dropped all product support for the 14.4V line. The intent is not to disguise where the timber came from - pick a pallet with a strong colour scheme and make it shine. Or you can simply lay 2x4s on top of your drawing, mark off your cuts for each piece, cut, and lay back down on your drawing to make sure your pieces line up exactly.Here's a simple way to cut truss angles using a speed square.
Now make sure the outside truss is flush with the edge of your osb sheet and nail into place every 6 inches.Line up your other trusses making sure they are spaced properly and nail into place the same way you did with your outside truss. Although every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information and design, the user is ultimately responsible for the use of this information. I too hope to build cabin of similar size.What sort of usage pattern are you going to have with this cabin?
I will use 2x4 collar ties across the 8' ceiling so the roof ridge beam should not bow down too much. I plan on building my shed at less than $1000 and make it a little bit better in terms of build quality. Firstly, we decomposed the microwave oven and took its transformer and the fan that cools it.

For the floor I'm thinking of using six deck pier blocks from Lowes or two pieces of 4x4x12 redwood.
Looking inside, I could see where they kind of cut corners with materials and wood spacing. The reason I was thinking redwood was that i couldn't find 4x4x12 pressure treated at the time when i was price shopping. One idle day, I decided to make a led lighting DIY project, install led strips in headlights on my Toyota matrix.
