This step by step diy project is about 16×16 barn shed doors plans. This is PART 3 of the barn shed project, where I show you how to build the double front doors for the storage shed. Building the double shed doors is a straight forward job, as you only need to follow my detailed instructions. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.
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.
Projects made from these plans
16×16 Barn Shed Doors Plans
- L – 8 pieces of 1×4 lumber – 96″ long, 2 pieces – 186 1/4″ long, 3 pieces – 187 3/4″ long, 2 pieces – 54 1/2″ long TRIMS
- M – 1 piece of 1×4 lumber – 79″ long, 2 pieces – 87 1/2″ long JAMBS
- N – 2 pieces of T1-11 siding – 36″x87 1/2″ long, 2 pieces of 1×4 lumber – 36″ long, 2 pieces – 80 1/2″ long, 1 piece – 29″ long 2xDOOR
Fit the 2×4 jambs around the double door opening. Fit the jams flush and insert 2 1/2″ screws to secure them into place tightly.
Build the door panels from T1-11 siding (the panel that you have cut out in the previous steps). Use 2×4 lumber for the trims. Align the edges flush and use 2″ brad nails to assemble the door.
Fit the double doors to the opening and lock them to the jambs with hinges. Moreover, install a latch and handles, so you can open and close the doors easily.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the sides of the shed. Align the edges with attention and lock the trims into place with 2″ nails, every 8″ along the frame.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the back of the shed, as well. Align the edges flush and insert 2″ nails, every 8″ along the framing.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the front of the shed, as well. Cut the trims at the right dimensions and then secure them into place with 2″ nails.
