Will learn the steps to building a double door and installing it on your storage, shed this door design uses a sandwich construction which makes the door stronger to help it hang straight and give you years of service. You will be building two separate doors that are slightly different in size: the main door overlaps, the secondary door. The secondary door is held closed by bolt or spring latches inside the shed remember to always use exterior polymer coated flat head screws for all attachments. We will build the secondary door first after cutting out the back panels, internal wood rails and front panels. The first step is to attach the back panel to the door rails start by setting the rails on a flat surface.
The three sides that touch the shed walls and floor will have an overhang of one and 1/4 inches. The side that touches the secondary door will have an overhang of one and a half inch after the two doors are made. You should lay them next to each other and verify the overhangs and overall sizes. The fourth step is to attach the door trim pieces cut out the trim pieces and check that they will fit together on the front of the doors, make sure that the screws are located so that they incur into the door rails behind the siding use a screw. At each end of each trim piece and then spaced evenly at 12 to 16 inches apart, any trim pieces in the center of the door panel will need to have their screws angled so that they hit the inner door.
Following the layout pattern shown on the door, plans set the back panel on the rails and make the outer edges of the rails flush with the edge of the panel screw the panel to the rails, using a 1 and 5/8 inch screw at 12 inches on center. The second step is to attach the front panel to the rail and back panel assembly. You just made start by flipping the door over and setting the front panel on. It use a tape measure to measure and adjust the front panel until the overhang is one and a quarter inches on the three sides that will be adjacent to the walls and floor on the fourth side, that is, between the two doors, the front panel will be Held back one and a quarter inches to show the internal rail.
