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.

Building a double shed doors
Build the double doors for the front of the shed using T1-11 siding panels and 1×4 trims. You can use the panels that you have cut out in the previous steps, so you save some money. Align the trims to the door panels and lock them together with glue and 1 1/4″ nails.
Fit the 1×4 jambs around the door opening. Align the slats to the edges of the opening and lock them into place with 2″ nails.
Fit the double doors to the opening and lock them into place with hinges. Install a latch to the lock the doors tightly. In addition, fit handles to the doors, so you can open and lock them properly.
Fit 1×4 trims to the front and sides of the shed. Make the angle cuts to the trims and then secure them into place with 2″ brad nails.
