This step by step diy project is about 10×16 horse shed with tack room doors and trims plans. This is PART 3 of the large shed project, where I show you how to build the doors for the storage shed and how to fit the decorative trims. 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 shed doors
First of all, you need to attach the 2×4 jambs around the opening. Align the edges flush, drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly, every 8″ along the framing.
Build the door panels from 1/2″ plywood and the frame from 2×4 lumber. Start by assembling the door frame using 2×4 lumber and pocket holes. Use 1 5/8 screws to lock the panels to the frame. Add glue to the joints and align the edges flush.
Build the doors for the horse shed from 1/2″ plywood and 2×4 lumber. Assemble the frames and then attach the panels.
Fit the doors to the front opening. Align the edges with attention and use hinges to lock the doors to the jambs. Install a latch to lock the doors into place tightly.
Fit the 1×2 battens to the sides of the shed. Make sure you place the battens over the joints. Use 2″ nails to secure the battens into place tightly.
Fit the battens to the back of the shed.
Fit the battens to the front of the shed.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the sides of the shed.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the front of the shed.
Fit the 1×4 trims to the back wall of the shed.
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. Check out PART 3 of the project so you learn how to build the side storage sheds.
