This step by step diy project is about shed double doors plans. This article is PART 3 of the 10×10 gable shed project, where I show you how to make the double doors for the shed. In PART 3 I also show you how to attach the trims to the shed, so you get the job done in a super nice manner. 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 barn shed doors
The first step of the project is to attach the 2×4 jambs around the door opening. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then secure them into place with 2 1/2″ screws or 8d nails.
Use 5/8″ T1-11 siding for the doors. Smooth the edges with sandpaper, after cutting the panels to size.
Attach the 2×4 trims to the door panels. Align the edges with attention and lock everything together tightly with glue and screws, Make sure the edges are flush for a professional result.
Attach decorative trims to the shed doors. Use glue and 2″ screws or nails to lock them into place properly.
Fit the double doors to the front of the shed and lock them to the jambs with hinges. Install a latch to lock the doors together tightly.
Use 1×4 lumber for the front and for the corner trims. Use 1 1/2″ brad nails to lock the trims into place tightly. Leave no gaps between the components. Install soffit to the shed, so you get a professional result.
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 enhance the look of the project.
Seen from one side, the shed has a nice appearance. This is a small shed, but it is still roomy enough to store your tools and other items.
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 10×10 barn shed. I have many more shed plans on the site, so don’t forget to check them as well HERE.
