10×16 Shed Doors Plans

This step by step diy project is about 10×16 shed doors plans. This is PART 3 of the gable shed project, where I show you how to build the single and the double doors for the shed. The 3 ft wide doors are made from 2x4s (frame) and T1-11 siding (panel). 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.

Last but not least, you have to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the holes and dents with wood putty. Smooth the surface with 120-200 git sandpaper, after a few hours. Apply a few coats of paint / stain. You should consider adding 1/4″ soffit under the overhangs, to seal the shed.
