Your shed project sounds like a good one and we look forward to seeing it come together. Do you have a sketch or plans of what you are planning to build?

Re: new build

I am more used to gable and portal frame roofs, I did find this though...

Not sure I would describe it as simple, to me a gable roof is a better option than a hip as there is less complicated fitting of the roof sheeting, just need to cut the infill for the gable ends.
