14×20 Barn Shed Doors Plans

This step by step diy project is about 14×20 gambrel shed roof plans. This is PART 3 of the large barn shed project, where I show you how to build the doors and how to attach the decorateive trims to the exterior of the shed. Make sure you check the local codes and make adjustments to the plans, if required. 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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

Take care of the finishing touches, as a last step of the project. Fill the holes with wood putty, smooth the surface and then apply a few coats of paint or stain to enhance the look of the shed. I have lots of other shed projects on the site so I recommend you to browse through all alternatives before starting the building project. See all my shed projects HERE. Moreover, check out PART 1 of the shed, so you learn how to build the frame of the shed. Check out PART 2 of the shed, so you learn how to build the double doors.
