This step by step woodworking project is about free 10×16 shed doors plans. This is PART 3 of the lean to shed project, where I show you how to build the double doors and the small door for the side wall. Don’t forget to take a look over the rest of the parts of the project, so you can learn how to build the roof and the frame of the shed. See my other DIY projects HERE.
We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

Building the shed doors
Fit the 1×6 trims to the sides of the roof. Align the edges flush and insert 2″ brad nails to lock them into place tightly.
Build the double doors for front of the shed. Cut the panels from T1-11 siding and then attach the 1×4 trims. Align the edges flush and use 1 14/” screws or nails to assemble the doors.
Attach the 1×4 doors jambs around the large door opening. Use 2″ brad nails and glue to secure the jambs into place tightly.
Fit the double doors to the front opening and secure it into place with hinges. Install a latch and handles so you can close and open the doors easily.
Assemble the door for the side of the shed. Use the same techniques described above for the shed door.
Fit the 1×4 jambs around the small door opening. Use nails and glue to secure the jambs into place tightly.
Fit the shed doors into the opening and lock it into place with hinges. Install the latch and the handles, as well.
Install the 3×3 PVC window to the opening. Fit 1×4 trims around the window opening. Align the trims with attention and lock them into place with 2″ brad nails.
Last but not least, you need to take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and smooth the edges flush with sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to enhance the look of the shed.
