Take one rafter and set it in place above the two plates. You can build them all just as you did the first one, and they will all be identical.  Finally, square the 6x6s by adjusting the position of one 6×6. Lay planks across the ceiling joists. The rafters must be longer than the building’s size, overhanging at each end of the house. Your shed may not be a liable space, but none the less, it is a structure in which you are going to invest a good sum of money on and you want it to last as long as possible without having to do any major repairs to. Make sure that the fascia board is flush with the top of the rafters and nail the fascia board to the rafter tails using 2 12d nails at each connection.
