Building Double Doors for 10×16 Hip Roof Shed

Ovidiu 0 List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 10×16 shed door and trims plans. This is PART 3 of the garden shed project, where I show you everything you want to know about framing the door and fitting the trims. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration. Remember that you need to select the site for the shed with attention and that you have to comply with a few legal regulations.

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.
