A Gable Sheds roof system has two equal sides that slope at the same angles meeting at the ridge point to form a triangle when viewed from the end, the roof pitch can be any angle but due to road restrictions is only offered as 4/12 pitch

Gable sheds take the longest time to construct when compared to buildings such as the Mansard or the basic Baby Barns.

The construction of the gable shed begins with a set of skids that go  the length of the building. Construction of the floor frame begins with using 2×6 floor joists.

We use 3/4 pine boards or 5/8 standard plywood, 

The walls are 6’6″ high and made from 2×4 studs with a header and shoe, covering the walls are 7/16” thick OSB.

The rafters are constructed from 2×4 lumber and are held together by gussets that we make our selves from OSB.

Over the OSB sheathing we place vinyl siding of whatever colour you like just as long as it’s still commercially available today, we currently use Gentek, mitten and residential series of siding, which are the more common brands.

In the back wall we place an 8×8 plastic lovered vent to allow the heat to escape from the summer heat. Roofing is standard 3 tab shingles and the door opening is 4′ wide. The door has vinyl siding capped with aluminium clad for trim.
