Extending a shed
Hi John, I want to extend my 15 by 12 foot shed. I would take the 12' and make the shed 22'long. What are some good ideas on doing this 'small' project?
Thanks for your question. Sorry for the delay in replying as I just got back from my holidays.
The first thing to do is to take a look at the roof of the shed. What is the roof structure? The easiest to extend would be if the roof is a series of individual trusses at say 16" centres. Looking at the existing roof will also give you an idea of timber sizes and how the members are connected.
If the roof is not the above form of construction then an alternative solution will be required depending on what you find.
The next thing is to look at the existing foundations and see how level the ground is in the area that you want to extend into.
It would be great if you could send in some photos and I will try to give you some more pointers.
All the best
