16×24 Gambrel Shed Door and Trims Plans

Ovidiu 8 GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 16×24 gambrel shed door and trims plans.This is PART 3 of the gambrel shed project, where I show you how to build the double doors for the shed and how to attach the decorative trims. Don;t forget to take a look over PART 1 and PART 2 of the project, for full instructions on how to build the 16×24 shed. 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.

Building double shed doors



The first step of the project is to attach the 2×4 jambs to the door opening. Fit the jambs around the edges and then secure them into place with 2 1/2″ screws.



Build the doors from the T1-11 siding panels that you have cut out in the previous steps. Build the trims for the double doors from 2×4 lumber. Lay the door panels on a level surface and then attach the trims into place tightly. Use glue and 2″ brad nails to lock the trims to the door panels. Align the edges flush and smooth them with attention.

Fitting the double doors

Fitting the double doors

Fit the double doors to the front opening and secure them into place with hinges. Moreover, you need to install a latch so you can lock the doors into place. Install handles so you can open and close the doors easily.

Side wall trims

Fit the 1×4 trims to the sides of the barn shed. Align the edges flush and then secure them into place with 2″ nails. Fit the trims around the windows, as well.

Front trims

    If I wanted a 16 x 24 with half a second floor I’m assuming I’d start with this plan (16 x 24 Gambrel). No?

    Do you have a “second-floor plan” that I could combine with this one? Also, I’m happy to buy a premium plan if one exists. It would be great if there could be one material list instead of one for each page. I love the site and love the content. Thanks!

    I love this plan. I am looking to see if you have a plan that has a stairs to the loft and I was hoping to have a plan that has a platform that can be raised or lowered to bring stuff from loft to floor.
