4×8 Lean To Shed Door Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about free 4×8 lean to shed door plans. In PART 3 of the project I show you how to build the double doors and how to add more charm to the shed by fitting the decorative trims. Remember that you need to read the local building codes before selecting the right location for the shed and before building 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.
