This step by step woodworking project is about free 8×16 garden shed door plans. This is PART 3 of the project, where I show you how to build the double doors for the barn shed. The double doors helps you have a super easy access to the interior of the shed. Don’t forget to check PART 1 and PART 2 of the shed project, so you learn how to build the roof and the frame for 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.

How to build double doors
Fit the 2×4 lumber around the opening. Align the edges flush, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws, every 8″ along the framing.
Build the doors from T1-11 siding and from 2×4 lumber. Lay the trims on the sheets, add glue to the joints and insert 1 5/8″ screws to lock everything together tightly.
Fit the doors to the openings and lock them into place with hinges. Install the handles and the latches, so you can open and lock the doors properly.
Last but not least, you need to take care of the finishing touches. Drill the holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to enhance the look of the shed and to protect the components from decay.
This garden shed is the right choice if you want to build something that is both useful and it also has an unique design. If you like my project, don’t forget to SHARE it on Facebook and Pinterest. Take a look over PART 1 and PART 2 of the project for the rest of the instructions!
