16×20 Double Shed Doors Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about free 16×20 double shed doors plans. This is PART 3 of the large storage shed project, where I show you how to build the double doors and how to fit the decorative trims. Take accurate measurements and double check them before making the cuts. Take a look over all my SHED PLANS, as well. 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 shed doors

Fitting the door jambs

Fitting the door jambs

The first step of the project is to build and attach the 2×4 jambs around the door opening. Align the edges flush and then secure them into place with 2 1/2″ screws.

Building the doors

Building the doors

Build the double doors from T1-11 siding and from 2×4 lumber. First, you need to assemble the door frame using pocket holes and 2 1/2″ screws. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges with attention. Fit the panels to the door frames and secure them into place with 2″ brad nails.

Fitting the front doors

Fitting the front doors

Fit the doors to the door opening and secure them to the jambs with hinges. Install a latch so you can lock the door together properly. Moreover, install handles so you can open and close the doors easily.

Side trims

The next step of the project is to fit the 1×4 trims to the sides of the shed. Align the edges flush and insert 2″ brad nails to lock the trims into place tightly.

Front and back trims
