This step by step diy project is about shed double doors plans. This article is PART 3 of the 16×16 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.

Shed Double Doors Plans
For this project, I recommend you to use the panels that you have cut out when attaching the siding around the opening. Use sandpaper to smooth the edges with sandpaper.
Attach the 2×4 trims to the panels. Align the edges flush and secure the trims into place with 2″ nails or screws.
Cut the diagonal braces from 2×4 lumber and then lock them into place with 2″ screws.
Fit the horizontal 1×4 trims to the front and back of the shed, as shown in the diagram. Align the trim at both ends and then secure it into place with 1 1/2″ brad nails.
Fit 1×4 trims to the corners of the shed. Align the trims with attention and the lock them into place with brad nails. Fill the holes with putty and then smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper.
Attach 2×4 slats around the door opening. Align the edges flush with attention and secure them into place with 2 1/2″ screws.
Fit the double doors to the openings and lock them into place with hinges. In addition, you need to secure a latch, so you can lock the doors into place tightly.
Seen from one side, the 16×16 shed has a neat appearance. If you choose the right color mix, this shed can blend in easily with any project you have on your property.
Seen from the back, the shed has a straight forward shape. Remember that this project is more about storage space and less about a spectacular design. Apply a few coats of paint over the siding and over the trims, so you get a nice appearance.
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 double doors of the barn shed. I have many more shed plans on the site, so don’t forget to check them as well HERE.
