Basic Overhang Plans - 4x4 Beams
Build a simple overhang lean-to for your storage sheds. These go with the New Yorkers, Vermonters and Nantucket sheds.
This simple overhang is a breeze to build and can be attached to a storage shed. It was designed to be installed with our economical storage sheds, but could be attached to nearly any existing building. This overhang design will show you how to construct a treated sill plate, 4×4 post and beam construction using true-dimensional rough sawn hemlock lumber, installation of hemlock rafters along with metal roof panels and flashing. Our plans include detailed diagrams, written instructions, a cut-list and rafter templates to guide you through each step of the process.
