10×12 Saltbox Shed Door and Trims Plans

by Ovidiu


This step by step diy project is about 10×12 shed roof plans. This is PART 3 of the sturdy storage shed, where I show you how to build the double front doors and how to fit the trims. Make sure you check out the first and second part of the project, so you learn how to build the frame of the shed, as well as the roof. You can easily adjust the size and the design of the doors, to suit your needs. 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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

Make sure you check out the rest of the project, so you learn how to frame the 10×12 garden shed and how to build the gable roof. See PART 1 and PART 2. In addition, I have lots of other shed projects on the site so I recommend you to browse through all alternatives before starting the building project. You can also add 1×4 decorative trims to the corners of the shed.

I wish there was a master list for materials needed. Just kind of frustrating bouncing from line to line and page to page to add everything up.

My Premium Plans have a “master list”. Unfortunately, I don’t have a premium plan for this project.
