This step by step diy project is about greenhouse shed door plans. This is PART 3 of the greenhouse shed, where I show you how to build the door, as well as the vents. 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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

Greenhouse Shed Door Plans
The first step of the project is to fit the 2×4 jambs around the door opening. Align the edges flush, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws.
Next, you need to build the shed door. Therefore, use the T1-11 panel that you have cut when attaching the siding to the front wall. Build the trims from 2×4 lumber. Attach the trims flush to the door panel and use 2″ brad nails to assemble the components together tightly. Add glue to the joints for a professional result. Leave no gaps between the trims for a professional result,
Cut some decorative trims for the door and attach them into place with 2″ brad nails.
Fit the door to the opening. Align the edges with attention and secure the door to the jambs with hinges. Moreover, you need to install a latch so you can open and close the door easily.
Fit 1×2 trims around the vent openings. Align the edges flush and use 2″ brad nails so you can secure the trims into place tightly.
Build the vent frames from 2×2 lumber. Align the edges flush and make sure the corners are square. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws so you can lock everything together tightly.
Fit the poly carbonate or greenhouse plastic to the frames and then fit the 1×2 trims. Use 1 5/8″ screws to secure the trims to the frames.
Fit the vents to the opening and secure them into place with hinges. Moreover, you could also fit an automatic vent opener, so you can make sure the vents open and close at the right temperature.
Fill the holes with wood putty and let it dry out before smoothing the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to enhance the look of the shed.
This greenhouse shed has a saltbox roof and it is large enough for any amateur gardener. In addition, the structure provides enough storage space for tools and other small items. Check out PART 1 and PART 2 of the project, so you learn how to build the frame and the roof for the shelter.
