This step by step diy project is about diy 10×12 shed door and trims plans. After building the frame and the roof for the shed, you need to build the door and attach the trims. Generally speaking, the trims will enhance the look of the shed and add character to the project. Moreover, I have designed shed with many sizes so check them out, as well. 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 a shed door
Building the door is a straight forward process. You just need to use 1×4 lumber for the trims and the panel you cut out from the panel that goes around the door opening. Align the edges and insert 1 1/4″ nails to lock everything together tightly.
Next, you need to attach the diagonal trims to the front door of the shed. Cut the ends of the trims at the angles shown in the diagram and secure them to the door with 1 1/4″ nails or screws.
Continue the project by fitting the 1×4 trims around the door opening. Use nails to secure the jambs into place tightly. Align the trims with attention so the edges are flush.
Fit the door to the opening and secure it to the jambs with hinges. In addition, I recommend you to install a latch so you can safely close the door.
Fit the rest of the 1×4 trims to the ends of the shed, as shown in the diagram. Take accurate measurements and align the edges for a professional result.
Fit the trims to the front and back faces of the shed, as well. Align the edges with attention and secure the trims into place with 1 1/4″ nails.
Fit the rest of the trims to the front of the 10×12 shed.
The gable shed has a nice appearance and it offers enough room for you to store a of items. Make sure you read the local building codes before deciding it’s final location.
Make sure you check out the rest of the project, so you learn how to frame the roof and the frame of shed. In addition, I have lots of other shed projects on the site so I recommend you to browse through all alternatives before starting the building project.
