i got a couple ideas off the forum and decided to build my own. the whole thing was made with 9 2x4s , and a 8' long x 24" wide roof from 3/4" plywood . i worried about the roof sagging in the middle with snow and rot, so i put an additional 5th post to support it . the uprights are held together with galvanized 4" lag bolts, then locked in from bowing out by the roof screws and also 2x4's that were placed below to lock them in so the bottom end cant move at all . i thought it was a better design than adding 4 angled pieces on the sides to support the posts which is what i see all the time . . that robs a lot of wood space i thought all in all it worked out good. i love that sage color .... painted a couple rooms in the house the same color . it was called 'mossy green' at home depot , if anyone wants to know . the 2 main beams at the bottom are left at their stock 8' length . the 3 rear taller roof supports are about 7' tall, and the front 2 supports are 6' tall, with a 30 degree miter to accommodate the slope of the roof to shed snow and rain. i initially had the roof as 36" wide instead of the now 24" ... but realized itll be under a soffit so i dont need the roof to cover the back of the rack . i was told to put some silicone caulk on the roof edges , since thats where most plywood starts to rot . im going to leave it i think since the Glidden paint i used was pretty thick . plus you can paint with it all the way to 37 degrees ... which is light years from paints ive used in the past... kinda neat. 18$ for a gallon. with it double coated i still had 1/3rd gallon left. simple and effective . itll hold .62 cord so thats not bad either. . .
