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.
Once the reveals are equal, you can install the door hinges. Install 6-inch gate hinges using three inch exterior screws. Remember that the door rails are 1 and a quarter inches from the door. Edges, so you must angle the screws that are not over the door rails so that they hit the door rails. The bolt of the hinges should be centered on the gap between the door and the shed trim.
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.
