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.
This step takes several adjustments to make sure the overhangs and reveals are all equal attach the panel to the rails, using one and five-eighths inch screws install one screw at each rail end and in the center the trim screws will increase the attachment strength when the trim Is installed remember that there is a one and a quarter inch reveal, so the screws will need to be at least an inch and a half from the panel edges be careful not to install them so far in from the edge that the trim boards will not Cover them, the third step is to build the main operable door.
It is built similar to the secondary door, except that the front panel overhangs on all sides. This allows it to overlap the secondary door to create a more weather, tight, fit and finish use the same screw sizes and placements that you did on the other door. You made the main door front. Panel. Overhangs are different from the secondary door that you built previously.
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.
