This step by step diy project is about 6′ double shed doors plans. This is PART 3 of the gable shed project, where I show you how to build the double front doors for the storage shed. Moreover, I show you how to fit the decorative trims to the shed, so you can add value. Make sure you read the local codes so you can comply with the legal requirements. 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
Building shed doors
- L – 2 piece of 2×4 lumber – 79 1/2″ long, 1 piece – 79″ long JAMBS
- M – 2 pieces of T1-11 siding – 36″x79 1/2″ long, 2 pieces of 2×4 lumber – 36″ long, 2 pieces – 72 1/2″ long, 1 piece – 29″ long, 2 pieces – 41″ long 2xDOOR
- N – 4 pieces of 1×4 lumber – 88″ long, 4 pieces – 86 1/2″ long, 2 pieces – 18 1/2″ long, 3 pieces – 115 3/4″ long, 2 pieces – 114 1/4″ long TRIMS
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 2×4 jambs around the double door opening. Fit the jams flush and insert 2 1/2″ screws to secure them into place tightly.
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 flush and then insert 2″ nails to lock them into place tightly.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the front of the shed. Cut the trims at the right size and hen lock them into place with 2″ nails. Fit the trims to the back of the shed, as well.
Check out PART 1 and PART 2 of the shed, so you can learn everything you need to know about building the floor, walls and roof for the shed. Moreover, I have lots of more shed plans, in terms of both sizes and shapes, HERE.
