Shed build

Recommended Posts

Building a 12' deep x 16' wide shed. Planning on a skillion roof with a 14 degree pitch (12/3 rise/run I think)  How high should my front wall be compared to my back wall using the 12' depth. I'm not a carpenter.

Build the building and find out, I am no carpenter either, read how to do just that via the Roof Types tab of your Build Roof dialog, then measure the results using your dimension tools, that is how I  would do it. Be sure and preset the ceiling height before you build the shed roof since that setting determine your ceiling height and the plate height of the roof baseline (the default setting for ceiling height is preset out of the box to 9', I do not know what that is in metric units, sorry.

That's for you to decide.

 

What you are modeling is a very simple structure. Use the software to create the model and see how it looks.
