Easy Diy Shed Building Plans

Salt box Roof

by Gerry Hauck
(Ridgefield CT)

Hello;

I bought a plan a couple years ago from you but haven’t been able to build it as if yet with lumber so high these days. It doesn’t call for a shed roof, but here is my question…

What is the proper ratio of the length of the rafters in a shed roof? I’d like to end up with an 8:12 pitch if I could, as I’d like that angle in the back for adding solar panels. I realize exact board-lengths depends on the shed size, just wondering if there is a set method to keep things proportional.

Thank you,

Gerry

Shed roof for solar panels
by: John

Hi Gerry,

I see that you purchased my 12x16 gable garage plans back in march of last year. Are you wanting to change over to a roof pitch similar to a saltbox so that the one side is longer and has an 8/12 pitch?

Please send me an email to shedking@gmail.com and we can discuss the issue further.

Thank you for your purchase!
