Building Barn Shed Doors Plans

This step by step diy project is about shed double doors plans. This article is PART 3 of the shed with porch project, where I show you how to build the roofing, the doors and how to take care of the finishing touches. Make sure you also check out the other parts of the project, so you learn how to understand the full building project. 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.
