Bike Shed Door Plans

This step by step diy woodworking project is about bike shed plans. This is PART 3 of the bike shed, where I show you how to build the small front door. This shed is easy to build and it can accommodate a few large bikes and a few small bikes, as well as skates and rollers. Remember that you need to read the local building codes before starting the construction, so you comply with the legal requirements. See my other shed plans 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 a 4×8 bike shed door

The first step of the project is to build the jambs for the front door. Cut the components from 1×4 lumber and then lock them into place with 2″ nails. Align the edges with attention and make sure the corners are square.

Last but not least, you need to take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface with sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain over the components, to protect them from decay and to enhance the look of the shed.

This is a very narrow shed, making it ideal for a small backyard. Don’t forget to take a look over PART 1 and PART 2 of the project so you learn how to build the roof and the front door for the storage shed. If you like my project, don’t forget to SHARE it on Facebook and Pinterest.
