One of the most important elements to keep in mind while building a barn shed is the design of the roof. The design of the roof will depend upon the climate of the area you live in. If you receive ample rain and snow it makes more sense to build steep pitched roofs to allow for easy drainage of water. Check with the local building committee to find the building codes on roof designs. Make sure you take extra precautions to water proof the shed roof and use roofing cement to seal the joints.
For the frame, 2x6 or 2x8 pressure-treated lumber is recommended. Exterior grade plywood A 3 /4 inch is required for a sturdy floor. Doubling up sheets of inch plywood is an acceptable way to achieve this goal. If a lawnmower or other heavy equipment like snow blower or snowmobile will make its way into the shed, it is a good idea to consider tongue-and-groove boards to support the weight of these items. In addition, investing in pressure treated plywood is also recommended for climates prone to high humidity and wood-boring pests like termites.
Framing lumber will be used for the wall frames. The wall frame will consist of the wall band on top and bottom, and the wall studs in between the wall bands. Next raise the walls and nail them to the foundation. If the shed walls are not that big, you can install the siding while it is still on the floor and then raise it.
