The back 10' wall will be solid so I can put a 2x4 stud directly under the ridge for support. If anyone already has a 10 x 12 foot shed with this design, what is the size of your ridge and above door support beam?
If you are not puttin in any ceiling joists I would add gussets at the peak of the rafters, and really then you do not need the ridge board.

I don't CAD small stuff like this, USP45, but here's a sketch of the roof layout, with small elev views inset.

After some research I have found that a typical roof should consist of one of these two designs.


Downward pressure on a roof turns into outward pressure on the walls when there are no collar ties. Look at the lower picture, that is some mighty honkin' laterals holding the side walls from spreading. If you are going for a high enough ceiling, then ceiling joists (completing the triangle) would be best and it would provide storage space above. Lumber can be purchased in 20' lengths, so a possibility to reduce the spreading effect would be a 2x10 x 20' ridge beam. There is a hotel not far from me that had a long narrow storage shed build and they obviously weren't thinking about the long problem. If you want to maintain an open design without a ceiling, install ceiling joists spaced four feet apart.
If you go with rafters, I would definitely incorporate ceiling joists, probably every 4', just as Wirepuller suggested. Plus when you notch out a 2x4 to rest on the top plate it doesn't leave much meat on the bone so to speak. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase your maximum bid amount. I have a decent knowledge base when it comes to construction, framing, etc but I have never done a roof before. So in your opinion is it OK to use gusset plates without some sort of horizontal support, like a collar tie or rafter tie?


This will prevent the side walls from spreading and still allow space to store long items on top of the joists.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Customer wants an 8x8 backyard shed built, one of the 4 corners cut off at the 4' mark on 2 sides to make an 8x8x4x4x5'8" pentagon. As for trusses, in addition to the more conventional ones that you mentioned, there are scissor trusses, which would provide the most open ceiling, attic trusses, which could provide better storage space above, although the same could be accomplished with rafters and ceiling joists, and gambrel trusses, which could provide storage above, as well as that traditional barn look from the outside. I also plan on using shingles for the roof so it will have myself and another guy on top of it for that work.
No problem but she wants a beamed ceiling, like no trusses - I'm not talking a finished ceiling, just the 2x4s showing under the sheathing.
And don't base your options simply on what your local big boxes carry; local lumer yards are a great source for quality materials and advice. This is a regular 2x4 frame job on concrete slab but I think she wants to hang deer in there or something, so its gotta be strong.
Another option would be to use Trusses, which from all the ones I have found seem to have some sort of horizontal support that forms a triangle.
