After building the base of the shed, you should continue the project and fit the roofing components. The first step of the project is to build the rafters and fit them into place, as in the plans. As you can see in the image, you need to cut the both ends of the rafters at about 15?, in order to drain the water properly. Fitting trims to the end of the rafters, as well as to the front and back faces of the garden shed is not compulsory, but it will most certainly add value to your project. After installing the roof and the asphalt shingles, there are still a few finishing touches you have to take care of. PRO TIP: Apply a few coats of paint to the wooden components, in order to enhance the look of the shed and to protect it from decay.

Here are some great tips for building a yard shed that will make it easier to build, a pleasure to look at and a more practical storage or work space. Pressure-treated lumber laid on a bed of gravel gives you a fast, easy foundation that will last for decades. Composite trim (made from wood fiber and plastic resins) can be cut, nailed or shaped with a router just like wood.
Every day that I get a few minutes to work on the garden shed I get a little closer to finished. The other thing that I need to do very soon is seal up any gaps around door and window trim areas as well as the corners. Build a small "rain" wall from concrete blocks to redirect the water down the aforementioned slope.

I'm hesitating to do much soil grading until fall because I would still like the area to be grass and fall is the best time to seed fescue and other cool season grasses. After I finished spraying the foam yesterday I went through and did some clean up inside the garden shed and put many of the leftover pieces of plywood in the rafters.
Tina,I think we're thinking a similar color scheme but it's hard to say for sure without actually seeing what it will look like! Welcome toThe Home Garden In the Greenhouse Pagewhere I am highlighting the construction of our greenhouse garden shed. The lean-to turf roof has doubled up rafters and a rubber liner, Sedum plants and bulbs have been included to make a special feature when entering and leaving the garden. The lower Oak frame has been left open for maximum air flow to dry out the properties fire wood. The frosted shingle roof, using high quality materials we make buildings that stand out by not standing out. The wood shed is built with a traditional oak frame on the lower section, Douglas fir has been used for the loft area and roof.
The walls have been clad vertically with Douglas fir weather boarding and the main roof is laid with blue label cedar shingles. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. As you will see in this article, any person with basic woodworking skills can get the job done in a few days, as this project doesn’t require complex steps. There are certain cases in which you need to choose a certain slope for your roof, so make sure you are aware of the legal requirements, before starting the actual construction. In order to get the job done as a professional, you need to secure the ridge boars on two supports, place at both ends.
Nevertheless, you can choose a steeper slope for your garden shed, but you also need to adjust the size of the rest of the roof components, as to fit together easily. First of all, you could fill the holes and gaps with wood filler and smooth the surface with medium-grit sandpaper.

Or lay joists on the wood foundation and cover them with plywood, just like the floors in most homes are built. A paver floor allows water to drain through, so it's perfect for a gardening shed and you can rinse the floor clean with a hose.

Of course I'm still not close enough for my tastes but I'll keep plugging away at it and eventually it will get completed. I want to get it ready for painting soon but I still haven't decided what colors I would like to use so any suggestions are welcome! Water did rise up and flow underneath the shed and came in one side then went out the other. I think a nice blue to complement your home with darker blue or white trim would look great in your yard. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Use pressure treated lumber and align all the components at both ends, before driving the galvanized screws. In addition, it would also be a good idea to consult a qualified engineer, if you plan to build a large garden shed, as it need a sturdy structure. A couple weeks ago I managed to add the trim to the corners on the outside of the shed and yesterday I did some gap sealing in the eaves. I went inside while it was raining to see exactly what was happening and saw a steady water flow.
The home had very little problems although I have noticed some trim near a gutter that needs nailed back in.
Used as a play area for the children and occasional stop over space for visitors, the loft is fully insulated with a small wood burner for heat. Place the starting course at the bottom of the roof, before fitting the rest of the shingles.
A metal roof typically lasts 30 to 50 years and instead of covering the whole roof with plywood, you just nail a few 2x4 “purlins” across the rafters. Under the house we only had a couple spots of water which should be dry by now.Lynn,Thanks for the encouraging words! Screwing the big metal panels to the purlins is much faster than nailing on hundreds of shingles. It does bring to mind a couple other tasks that need done either this summer or in the fall. I hope to get a good amount done before July - make it usable for fall propagation and storing of plants over the winter.
