This step by step diy project is about 10×12 shed door plans. This is PART 3 of the 10×12 lean to shed project, where I show you how to build the doors for the storage shed and how to fit the trims. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration. Remember that you need to select the site for the shed with attention and that you have to comply with a few legal regulations.
When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build double shed doors
Fit the 2×4 jambs around the opening with 6-8d nails. Insert the nails every 8″ along the framing. Align the edges flush.
Build the door panels from T1-11 siding and the trims from 2×4 lumber. Use 2″ screws to lock the panels to the trims. Add glue to the joints and align the edges flush.
Fit the double doors to the opening. Align the edges and then lock the doors to the jambs with hinges. Install a latch to the doors so you can keep them closed properly.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the back of the shed. Align the edges with attention and leave no gaps between them. Insert 6d nails to lock the into place tightly.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the sides of the shed. Cut the trims at the right dimensions and angles and then fit them into place tightly. Insert 6d nails every 8″ along the framing to lock the into place tightly.
Last but not least, you need to attach the 1×4 trims to the front of the shed. Cut the trims at the right dimensions and then lock them into place tightly with 6d nails.
