And the higher roof pitches offer additional overhead storage in an easy to build loft area. However if you can manage the barn style shed looks great and provides lots of additional storage if you build the optional loft. You can make this shed shorter if necessary by removing the same amount from all vertical cut dimensions.
Are you thinking about buying some shed plans but are confused and don’t know which ones to buy? I will explain the similarities and difference between my 4 shed plans to help you in deciding which one is best for your new shed project. The lean to style sheds have too shallow of a roof pitch for shingles so they use either rolled mineral roofing or metal.
The regular gable roof plans only offer the simple 2-6 inch overhang but the lean to and barn plans can be build with the either the 2-6 inch overhang or a full 12 inch overhang. With the regular gable and the lean to style plans the longest shed you can build is 20 ft. The gable roof and lean to style plans are limited to 12 ft in width because they use a simple truss or rafter design. The regular gable roof shed plans are the easiest and most economical to build because the walls are symmetrical and there are no complicated trusses to build or fancy overhang options. The lean to sheds aren’t symmetrical but the rafters are strait without any cut outs and you can build it with either the simple 2-6 inch overhang or the more complicated full 12+ inch overhang. Barn style trusses are easy to build but the added difficulty is working on the roof because of the increased pitch and greater overall working height.
The Deluxe shed is the most difficult to build because it doesn’t offer the simple overhang option, only the full 12 inch overhang. All sheds include instructions to frame for prehung doors and windows, or to build your own single or double door in any width or height and in any location, or build multiple doors. All plans come with a materials list so you can calculate the cost to build it before you make that final commitment and start buying materials. Within seconds of your purchase a download link will be sent to the email address associated with your PayPal account.
Sometimes your email and your browsers will not work properly together so you will have to cut the link from the email and paste it into a browser. But remember where you download the plans otherwise you will not be able to find them on your computer when you need them.


Bruce built this shed as a wood working shop where he manufactures children’s toys and furniture.
It’s a true 2 story shed because he sat the floor on top of the top plates and sat the trusses on the floor so as to not lose any headroom above or below. Gary built this 12×24 shed near Albuquerque New Mexico using my tall barn style shed plans. I needed someplace to store my tractor and the dozens of items that were “trespassing” in my woodworking shop. I followed Phil’s suggestion of attaching and suspending the 4?4 posts from the skids, over the holes dug for the piers. Since my tractor weighs about 3,000 lbs, I used (4) rows of 4?4 skids rather than (3) and lined-up the (2) center rows so that the distance between them was the same as the width between the center-line of my tractor’s tires. I’d suggest buying a new 4? level regardless the age of your existing level and check several at the store before purchasing the one that you’ve confirmed is accurate. Constructing the 23 trusses was pretty simple by building a giant “square” using 2x4s and following the square edges of the shed floor.
The trick was finding a place to store the trusses for a couple weeks while I built the walls (and waited for help to arrive).
A dilemma I frequently encountered was deciding what would be “faster” vs “do-able” for a one-person job. If you pre-build all the walls, you’ll need space for a lay-down yard to store the materials and finished pieces.
Keep in mind there’s a lot of climbing and ladder-work involved in this project and hanging trusses was just one example. Finding a friend to assist with lifting the side walls wasn’t a problem but lifting the upper gambrel end walls….that was a challenge! For an 8? wide door opening, I chose a double 2?10 laminated header to minimize any chances of sagging.
Lifting the upper gambrel end onto the far-end wall allowed me to drive the tractor forward into the shed.
As suggested in the plans, I fabricated the crows beak frame on the ground and test-fitted it against one of the gambrel end walls that was laid-out. Using a rope laced over the flying rafter (the truss on the outside of the structure), I hoisted the crows beak to its approximate position, then tied-off the rope.
This article will detail the construction of a 10×12 shed built with my Tall Barn Style Gambrel Roof Shed Plans.
These Tall Barn Style Plans are my most popular so I decided to make this article to detail building one. I’m in the process of building and photographing it now and will be adding to this post daily. So sign up for my newsletter and I will send you an email when this post is finished, and when I finish each video.


I decided to put all 10 steps in the same article so it will flow better and maybe be easier to go back and forth between the steps.
You can get a larger and more detailed version (1080×1920) of any of the photos in this article by clicking on them. Please save this file in your phone or computer so you can read or print it any time you want. 2 of the plans are gable style roof, 1 is barn style or gambrel roof line and one is the single slope, lean-to style or flat roof. The advantage of shingles is that they’re relatively easy to install, economical and come in a wide variety of colors and textures and have a lifespan of up to 30 years.
Metal is a little more expensive but it’s fast and easy to install and has a life span of 50+ years. This is because they use a single top plate and 20 feet is the longest 2×4 you can buy.
If you want to build over 12 ft wide then the tall barn and deluxe plans go up to 16 ft in width because they use a stronger but more complicated truss design. And the the trusses are more complicated because of the increased pitch and the 14 and 16 ft width options. I recommend trusses and rafters to be placed at 24 inch on center for sheds up to 12 ft wide, and 16 inch centers for sheds over 12 ft wide. Getting the trusses in-place and square with each other was tricky but not a major problem since I had a good friend to help (or maybe I was helping him). The skids will be bumped around a lot during floor construction so we will do a final level in the next step when the floor frame is finished and squared. And like the tall barn style shed, working on the deluxe roof is more difficult because of the steeper pitch and greater overall working height. After paying you will almost instantly receive a download link in the email address associated with your paypal account or your credit card. I drilled holes spaced 6” on-center, cut the hinges to fit, removed the manufacturing oil residue, primed and painted. If you want a shed thats over 20 ft long then you can use either the tall barn style plans or the deluxe plans. This process was definitely more work than just purchasing several “T-style” door hinges but with each door being 4? wide x 74? high, their weight needed additional support. Building a shed without overhang is easier but the overhang looks good and protects the sides from the weather. Perhaps a journeyman carpenter could have avoided the numerous back-n-forth trips from saw-to-wall but I didn’t.
