This step by step diy project is about shed doors plans. This article is PART 3 of the shed with porch project, where I show you how to build the roofing, the doors and how to take care of the finishing touches. Make sure you also check out the other parts of the project, so you learn how to understand the full building project. 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.

Building double shed doors
Attach the 2×4 trims around the door opening. Use 3 1/2″ screws to secure the slats into place tightly.
Use 2×4 lumber for the door frame. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the vertical and middle components. Align the edges flush, making sure the corners are square. Insert 2 1/2″ screws to assemble the door frame.
Cut the door panels from 5/8″ T1-11 siding. Attach the 2×4 trims to the door panels and use 2″ screws and glue to lock the trims into place tightly.
Attach the doors to the opening and hang them into place with hinges and a latch.
Fit the 2×4 jambs around the side door, as well.
Assemble the side door in the same manner described above.
Fit the door into place and align the edges flush. Use hinges to secure the door to the jambs. Also, install a latch to lock the door.
Fit the 36″x36″ window to the opening and then cover the joints with 1×4 trims. Use 2″ nails to secure the trims into place tightly.
Seen from the back, the lean to shed has a really nice appearance. With all the trims set into place you can take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper.
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 roof of the lean to shed. I have many more shed plans on the site, so don’t forget to check them as well HERE.
