  5. how to build a small flat roof shed
Asked: 2019-04-23 14:52:00
Hello, guys. I always wanted to have a shed and now I decided that it was the time to stop sitting on my ass and do something about it. There is just one problem, though, I never did it before, so I’m pretty unsure of how to proceed. I want to build a small flat roof shed to store some equipment and stuff. My wife is tired of me storing all of it in the garage, so this would solve a lot of problems. How can I do it? Can anyone here explain to me the best steps to move forward on this one?

The first step to create a small flat roof shed is to erect a good foundation for it. Then comes the framework, walls and ceiling. It’s easier than it looks, but you need to be sure that you will use quality materials and that everything will be properly nailed, too. If the construction is not stable, it’ll probably go down pretty easily.

Building a small 5 by 10-foot storage shed can be a pretty easy task, my friend. You just need a few days to do it. You should begin by leveling the ground and then installing deck piers. Then start setting up the joists and support beams. The idea is to properly support the ground first. This is important because without the support, it’ll all fall to the ground. Then you should nail plywood to the floor, build the framework, walls and finally the roof.

When you build a house, a shed or anything by yourself, really, it’s all about stability. You should be careful from the start. This is why you should absolutely level the ground when starting and then installing a support such as deck piers. All the joists, plywood and rafters that will be installed later will be depending on the structure of this phase.

Level the ground, install deck piers spaced by around six feet on it, string support beams to support joists on the floor. You will need several joists and also a center support beam to prevent them from moving. Set up the floor later and then erect the framework for the walls. If your foundation is solid, the rest will be easier. You can finish by using joists on the ceiling and then plywood on the roof.
