8×14 Lean to Shed Door Plans

by Ovidiu


This step by step diy project is about 8×14 shed doors and trims plans. This is PART 3 of the lean to shed project, where I show you how to build the double doors for the storage shed and how to fit the decorative trims. The double front doors will allow and easy access to the interior of the 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. 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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

Building 8×14 shed doors



Fit the 2×4 jambs around the front door opening. Align the edges with attention, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws, every 8″ along the framing.



Build the door panel from T1-11 siding and the trims from 2×4 lumber. Use 1 5/8 screws to lock the panels to the trims. Add glue to the joints and align the edges flush. The door panel is the piece you have cut out when installing the sheets to the front wall.

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.
