Shed repair

I am back with my shed question

Last winter, I discovered a hole/damaged wood on evaes .
per advise of leared members, put a aluminium flashing as temporary fix till warmer days.

Now I have started working on it and looks like there are more

I have removed the rotted wood but there are rots on the studs that hold the roof ( is that called truss)

Out of 9 such studs, two has rot at the end where I need to nail the replacement wood. Do I sister those roof support with new pieces or will bondo work ( since rot is only in the end point and did not run through the wood)

Hi, I would sister the rafters as needed, roof plywood looks like some of it should be replaced also.

Sintering would give more structural support, bondo would just be filling the void.

The priority you need to address is shedding the water. Get the water off the structure and nothing should rot. A new roof, good drip edges, flashing will make that shed last a long time.

Agree with Geo.
It's a shed. Go with repair and when it begins to cost too much for repair then its time to buy a new one.
