4×8 Attached Shed Doors Plans

Ovidiu 2 GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 4×8 shed doors and trims plans. This is PART 3 of the 4×8 lean to storage shed project, where I show you how to build the double 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.

Building shed doors for a 4×8 lean to shed

Fitting the jambs

Fitting the jambs

Fit the 1×4 trims around the door opening. Align the edges and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly, every 8″ along the framing.

Building the doors

Building the doors

Build the door panels from T1-11 siding you cut out in the previous steps and the trims from 1×4 lumber. Use 1 1/4 screws to lock the panels to the trims. Add glue to the joints and align the edges flush.

Fitting the double doors

Fitting the double doors

Fit the doors to the opening and align the edges flush. Attach hinges to lock the door to the jambs. Install a latch to lock the door tightly.

Side wall trims

Side wall trims

Fit the 1×4 trims to the sides of the shed. Align the edges with attention and insert 8d nails to lock the trims into place tightly. Make sure you use a miter saw to make the angle cuts to the top of the trims, so you can fit them into place tightly.

Front trims

Front trims

Fit the 1×4 trims to the front of the shed. Align the edges with attention and insert 8d nails, to lock them into place tightly.

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.

    Hi, I’m working on the 4×8 lean to shed. Thanks for all these awesome plans. We’re nearing completion and look forward to sharing our photos when we are done. We have ours detached from the house, so we needed to add siding panels to the back wall. We’re excited to finish, right now we are putting up the rafters and it is looking great!

    Your plans here state that the rafter angle is 3.5 degrees on that top edge.

    When we worked on it it seems to actually be 33.5 degrees. I am sure it was just a little typo where a digit got cut off, but 3.5 degrees definitely doesn’t work for that angle where it meets up to be in line with the back of the shed.

    thanks again. This is SUCH a cool website!

      I have looked over the 3D model and there is indeed a typing error. Set the miter saw to 26.5 degrees. Looking forward to seeing your project and sorry for the error.
