This step by step woodworking project is about free shed plans with garage door. If you want to build a 12×16 shed with a large garage door and a smaller door on one side, these are the plans to follow. This shed will be ideal for storing a motorcycle or an ATV, as the access door is wide enough for them to fit inside. My plans come with step by step instructions and you can easily adjust all the dimensions to suit your needs. 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 12×16 shed with garage door
Fist of all, you need to frame the floor. Cut the joists at the right dimensions and smooth the edges with sandpaper. Align the edges flush and then lock them together with 3 1/2″ screws. Drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert the screws into the perpendicular components. You can use 2×6 or 2×8 lumber for the joists, according to the weight you are going to put on the floor.
Attach the 4×4 skids to the floor frame of the shed. Drill pilot holes through the joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the skids. Place the skids equally spaced, so they can support the weight of the shed evenly.
Attach the 3/4″ plywood sheets to the floor frame. Align the edges flush, drill pilot holes and insert 1 5/8″ screws to secure the sheets into place.
Build the wall frames for the 12×16 shed with garage door from 2×4 lumber. Cut the components at the right dimensions. Drill pilot holes through the top plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the studs. Place the studs every 24″ on center, for a professional result.
Frame the side wall with door for the shed by using the information from the diagram. As you can easily notice in the diagram, you need to frame the door opening properly, so the frame is rigid enough. Needless to say that you can adjust the door opening to suit your needs.
Build the back wall for the storage shed in the same manner described above.
Frame front wall for the shed. As you can see in the diagram, you need to leave a large opening for a garage door. It is always a good idea to decide what door you will fit to the opening before framing the wall, so you leave enough space.
Attach the T1-11 siding to the exterior of the shed. Cut the panels to the right dimensions and shapes and then secure them into place with 2″ brad nails. Leave no gaps between the sheets for a neat result.
Fit the sheets to the plain side of the shed. As you can imaging, this process should go really easy and quick, as there are no many cuts to make. Align the sheets into place and then secure them with 2″ brad nails.
Attach the T1-11 siding sheets to the side of the shed with the door opening. Align the edges flush and then insert 2″ brad nails.
Fit the T1-11 siding to the back wall, as well, using the same techniques described above.
