When I think of a 10×12 shed, I usually think of a gable roof shed. The gable roof is the standard roof design that most people picture when they think about a shed. It is simple and slopes down on both sides. The two sides are symmetrical in shape.

Gable Shed Plans

The gable roof is a fairly boring design, but it makes a lot of sense to use in regions where snow is very common. The gable roof design also allows for the storage of tall items that would not normally fit in a flat-roof shed.

The first thing that you need to do before you can make your gable shed is find out the local rules and regulations regarding outdoor construction. Most localities will allow you construct a shed without needing building permits. You will also need to decide where exactly you will need the shed. Will you prefer it in the backyard or the garden? Does your backyard offer the space needed for the shed; if so then how much? These are all things you’ll need to consider when designing and building your gable roof shed.

Before you get too far though, you really need to get yourself a good set of shed plans. Trust me, if you try to use a set of free gable shed plans you found online you’re going to regret it. A premium set of plans will ensure a much smoother build and will save you have wasting money on a shed you’re not happy with.

I wish you success in building the shed of your dreams!
