Building the roof of the shed is pretty much a straight-forward job, if you assemble the trusses on the ground. In order to get the job quickly and to drain the water properly, we recommend you to make the pitch of the roof about 30º. Cut the ends of the angled rafters at 30º, while the ends of the bottom rafters should be cut at 60º.
Do you need a storage shed for tools, garden accessories, family heirlooms, crafting supplies, collectibles, farm/livestock purposes, or just general “life overflow”? Do you need a safe storage space for your ATV, motorcycle, or mower? Do you need a “man cave,” “she shed,” or extra home office space? No matter the reason for your purchase now, as your needs shift or change over time, the functionality of the shed can also easily change. Your storage space. Your choices. Your current and future needs, met. Start designing your custom pre-built storage sheds, storage barns, wood garages, or playhouses today. .
Regardless of whether your facility requires this or not, having insurance is a great way to protect yourself and your belongings while in storage. Better safe than sorry!
You can cut asphalt sheets with any saw or utility knife. Cut your sheet for the depth (front to back) measurement first. Next, overlap one sheet over the other (only overlap one peak.) Mark the width of the shed roof plus 2″. For these plans 65″ is the width that worked on the shed, but be sure to double check your shed roof.
But fads have changed and so has the taste and design of WOODEN SHEDS. For 2021, if you want a real fancy shed (and yes, a bit more maintenance), you’re back to wooden shed choices! You can still buy the economy wooden sheds that have been around for decades and they come in much better wooden siding choices.
Note that there is a difference between unit access, which are the actual access hours you’re allowed to view your stuff, and facility access which is the time that the storage facility office is open. When selecting this amenity, make sure you choose the right one for your needs.

Many thanks for the excellent log store design on your website. It is so much more practical and attractive than any of the others that I found online. I had an assortment of treated timbers from a recent loft conversion so the only supplies I needed to get were the nails, screws and featheredged timbers for the side and back. I even had some roofing felt left over from a job last year, so very little money had to be spent. The final dimensions were 6′ high, 5′ wide and 20″ deep. I’ve emailed you with a picture.
