How To Frame a Gambrel Roof Rafter Watch and learn how to frame a gambrel roof rafter or gambrel roof truss for the 8x8 gambrel shed plan with short walls.

8x8 Gambrel Shed Plans Include The Following:

  • Materials List:The 8x8 gambrel shed barn plans come with a complete materials list that is broken down by parts of the shed.
  • Foundation: The foundation is made by leveling a bed of crushed gravel. The floor framing sets directly on top of the gravel bed.
  • Floor: Pressure treated 2x6 floor joists with 3/4" Pressure treated floor sheathing.
  • Walls Framing: 2x4 framing at 16" on center with a double top plate, just like a home is framed.
  • Wall Height: The shed wall height is 5'-4". The gambrel barn roof makes the height inside over 9' tall!
  • Door: 2'-9" x 5'-9 1/2" door is built using sandwich construction for strength and durability. The shed door is built using a 2x4 inner frame faced on the inside with 1/2" O.S.B. and on the outside there is a layer of T-111 to match the rest of the shed. We use 3 hinges on the doors and the screws go into the inner 2x4 frame of the door to give extra strength.
  • Siding: T-111 exterior siding. Other sidings such as vinyl or board and batten may be used.
  • Roof: The roof is framed using 2x4's to build the trusses. It is sheeted with 1/2" O.S.B. The plans give you the dimensions and cut angles so you can build the roof rafters on the ground and then put them up on the top plates.
  • Roof Pitch: The gambrel roof has a double roof pitch.
  • Roof Overhang: 6" on the eves and soffits
  • Roofing: Asphalt shingles.
  • Trim: 1x4 wood, masonite or cement trim materials are used to finish the corners, roof eves and facia, and door.
  • Floor Load: 50 pounds per square foot for framed floors. You don't want your shed floor to feel spongy.
