This step by step diy project is about shed double doors plans. This article is PART 3 of the 8×16 gable shed project, where I show you how to make the double doors for the shed. In PART 3 I also show you how to attach the trims to the shed, so you get the job done in a super nice manner. 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.

Building large shed doors
Use the pieces of siding that you have cut in the previous steps as door panels. Smooth the edges with sandpaper for a neat result.
Attach 2×4 trims around the doors panels, as shown in the diagram. Align the edges with attention and insert 2″ screws to lock everything together tightly.
Cut and install the diagonal braces to the doors. Align the components with attention and lock them into place with 2″ screws.
Attach 2×4 slats around the door opening and lock them into place with 2 1/2″ screws.
Fit the doors into place and then secure them to the jambs with hinges. In addition, fit a latch to the doors, so you can lock together.
Fit 1×4 trims to the front, back and sides of the shed. Use 1 1/2″ brad nails to lock the trims into place tightly.
Fit trims to the sides of the shed, as well.
This narrow shed is ideal for any backyard, as it has a neat design that can match the style of any property.
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 16×16 shed with porch. I have many more shed plans on the site, so don’t forget to check them as well HERE.
