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.

How to build barn shed doors plans
Attach the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the roof of the barn shed, after cutting them to size. Align the edges flush and then insert 1 5/8″ screws into the rafters, every 8″. Make sure the head of the screws is level with the surface of the roof.
Fit the plywood sheets to the other side of the barn shed roof.
Fit 3/4″ plywood sheets to the other side of the barn shed roof and to the porch. Align the edges with attention and leave no gaps between the components. Drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock the sheets into place tightly.
Attach this panel to the roof of the barn, as well.
Attach 3/4″ plywood sheets to the ceiling of the porch. Cut the sheets to size and lock them into place with 2 1/2″ screws. Leave no gaps between the sheets and insert the screws for a professional result. This is an optional step.
Attach 2×4 slats around the door opening. Align the edges flush and insert 2 1/2″ screws so you lock them into place tightly.
Start assembling the side door using the panel that you have cut out in the previous step. Smooth the edges with sandpaper.
Attach 2×4 slats to the door panel. Align everything with attention and secure the trims to the panel with 2″ brad nails and glue.
Fit the door to the opening and secure it into place with a latch and with hinges.
Attach the 2×4 jambs around the door opening. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then secure them into place with 2 1/2″ screws or 8d nails.
Use 5/8″ T1-11 siding for the doors. Smooth the edges with sandpaper, after cutting the panels to size.
Attach the 2×4 trims to the door panels. Align the edges with attention and lock everything together tightly with glue and screws, Make sure the edges are flush for a professional result.
Fit the diagonal trims to the double doors, as shown in the diagram.
Hang the double doors to the front of the barn shed. Use hinges and a latch to lock the doors into place. Make sure you leave an even gaps around the doors.
Fit a 1×4 trim to the front and back of the shed. Use 4d nails to lock the trims into place tightly.
Fit the rest of the trims to the corners and to the top of the barn shed. Use 4d nails to lock the trims into place tightly.
Fit 1×6 trims to the front and back of the roof. Cut the trims to the right angle and size and then secure them into place with nails.
Fit the rest of the trims to the porch section of the barn. Align the edges flush and lock them into place with 4d nails.
Cover the roof of the carport with roofing felt, making sure the strips overlap at least 2″. Secure the tar paper to the plywood sheets with roofing staples. In addition, cut a large piece for the top ridge. Fit the side drip edges over the roofing felt, while the bottom drip edges should be fit under. Read the instructions labeled on the asphalt shingle packs before installing them into place tightly. Start with the bottom left side of the roof and install them all the way to the top.
Apply a few coats of paint or of stain over the components, so you enhance their look and protect them from decay.
Don’t forget to take a look over PART 1 and PART 2 of the shed project, so you learn how to frame the frame and the roof of the barn shed. I have many more shed plans on the site, so don’t forget to check them as well HERE.
