This step by step diy project is about 10×12 shed doors and trims plans. This is PART 3 of the shed with front porch project, where I show you how to build the double doors for the storage shed and how to fit the decorative trims. The double side doors will allow and easy access to the interior of the shed. The front door with window add a more practical touch to the shed and a little light, as well. 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. 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 a few day. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

Building 10×12 shed doors
Fit the 2×4 jambs around the side door opening. Align the edges with attention, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws, every 8″ along the framing.
Build the door panel from T1-11 siding and the trims from 2×4 lumber. Use 1 5/8 screws to lock the panels to the trims. Add glue to the joints and align the edges flush. The door panel is the piece you have cut out when installing the sheets to the front wall.
Fit the door to the front of the shed. Align the edges with attention and use hinges to lock them to the jambs. Make sure the doors open and close easily and then install the latch.
Build the double doors in the same manner described above. Use T1-11 siding and 2×4 lumber.
Next, you need to build jambs for the double doors. Cut the jambs from 2×4 lumber and secure them to the wall with 2 1/2″ screws.
Fit the double doors into place and lock them to the jambs with hinges. Make sure the doors open and close easily and then use a latch to lock the doors into place tightly.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the corners. Align the edges with attention and insert 2″ nails, every 8″ along the framing.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the front and back of the shed. Align the edges with attention and insert 2 1/2″ nails, very 8″ along the framing.
Last but not least, you need take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to the components, so you can protect them from decay and so you can enhance the look of the shelter. Check out PART 1 and PART 2 of the shed, so you can learn everything you need to know about building the floor, walls and roof for the shed.

Hello! Thanks for this plans, I use them for make my own shed. But checking all before start. I m not sure why the dimension on the door are not acurrate, like for the doble door: just one door high suppose to be 80” but when I added 73” (2×4 lumber) + 4” and +4” (two lumber 2×4-36” , one for top and other for bottom) total is 81”
Why is this wrong?
Same for the jambs for the doble door 36”+36” =72” +2”and+2”(2”for the both side of the jambs) that’s is 76” I missing or having 3” in space. Is not that to mush space between doors?
Im just want clear my “?” For be sure to star.
Please help me!
2×4 lumber has a nominal size of 1 1/2″x 3 1/2″ Please read this: http://myoutdoorplans.com/imperial-to-metric-conversion/
