Greenhouse Shed Door Plans

Jack 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about greenhouse shed door plans. This is PART 3 of the greenhouse shed, where I show you how to build the door, as well as the vents. 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.

Attach the trims flush to the door panel and use 2″ brad nails to assemble the components together tightly. Add glue to the joints for a professional result. Leave no gaps between the trims for a professional result,
