Custom-made shed doors are a great way to add some personality to your shed and save some money in the process. To create shed doors, you'll need to get wood paneling or plywood to create the door itself, then reinforce the door with a wooden frame. If done correctly, you can create a stylish but sturdy door for your shed!

== Steps ==
=== Gathering Materials for Your Door ===
#Measure and mark the size of your doorframe. Measure from one side of the door frame to the other side of the frame and subtract {{convert |12|mm|in|}} to each side. This extra space is needed so that you can properly open the door. Write down the length and the width of the doorframe on a piece of paper. Most shed doors will be somewhere between {{convert |25|-|45|in|cm|}} wide and {{convert |5.5|-|7|ft|m|}} tall.<ref>https://www.buildeazy.com/newplans/shed_door_install_4_06.html</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 1.jpg|center]]
#Choose and purchase material for your door. You can use a T1-11 siding, which resembles wood paneling, or you can use plywood sheathing to construct the door.<ref>https://www.homeadvisor.com/r/t1-11-siding/</ref> Another option is purchasing bead boards, which are boards that can interlock with one another. Use a material that blends in with the siding on the shed so that the door matches the aesthetic of your structure.<ref>https://www.thisoldhouse.com/ideas/6-tips-shopping-beadboard</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 2.jpg|center]]
#*T1-11 siding and beadboards are sturdier than plywood sheathing.
#*Get paneling or plywood that is at least {{convert |1.5|in|cm|}} thick.
#Purchase 3 {{convert |1|x|4|in|cm|}} boards for your frame. Purchase 3 {{convert |1|x|4|in|cm|}} boards that are as long as the height of the door. Purchase boards that are a foot or 2 longer than the height of your door and cut them down later to ensure that you have enough wood to construct the entire frame.[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 3.jpg|center]]
#Buy 2 {{convert |1|x|8|in|cm|}} boards. These boards will act as the top and bottom of the frame that will go on top of your door. Get boards that are as long as the width of your door. [[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 4.jpg|center]]

=== Constructing the Door ===
#Draw an outline of your door on your wood paneling. Measure and mark an area on your wood paneling that corresponds with the measurements that you took, minus {{convert |12|mm|in|}} to each side. Use a flat edge to draw the lines that will serve as a guide as you cut the material to size.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mY6GkLC-rHo&feature=youtu.be&t=1m27s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 5.jpg|center]]
#*Hold a level up against the lines to make sure that they are not on an angle.  
#Cut the material to size. Use a saw and cut along the lines using a flat edge to guide as you cut. If you want more precise cuts, you can use circular saw or miter saw to cut out your door. If you are using interlocking beadboards, make sure to cut away the uneven edges on the boards so that they are straight on all sides of the door.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I17Ez3V3LYE&feature=youtu.be&t=1m36s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 6.jpg|center]]
#Cut {{convert |1|x|4|in|cm|}} boards to the height of your door. Take your {{convert |1|x|4|in|cm|}} strips of wood and use a circular saw or handsaw to cut them to the height of your door. Cut out 2 pieces of wood for each side of your door and lay them on the floor.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUcRm1vp8UA&feature=youtu.be&t=1m22s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 7.jpg|center]]
#Glue the strips to the left and right edges of your door. Squeeze wood glue in a back and forth motion to apply wood glue. Put glue all the way down the length of the {{convert |1|x|4|in|cm|}} boards, then line up both boards with the right and left edge of the door and lay them on top of it. Press down on the boards so that they lay flat on the door’s surface.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I17Ez3V3LYE&feature=youtu.be&t=3m26s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 8.jpg|center]]
#Screw {{convert |1.25|in|cm|}} long screws into the frame. Use an electric screwdriver to drive screws into the corners of the frame. Start from one end of the frame and place 2 screws about {{convert |.25|in|cm|}} away from both edges of the frame. Continue your way down the length of the frame, spacing the screws about {{convert |6|in|cm|}} apart. This will secure the sides of the frame to the door.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUcRm1vp8UA&feature=youtu.be&t=1m53s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 9.jpg|center]]
#Measure the space in between the two side frames. Use a tape measure and record the amount of space in between the two side frames. If you’ve squared everything up correctly, the space should be the same on the top and bottom of your door.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUcRm1vp8UA&feature=youtu.be&t=2m25s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 10.jpg|center]]
#Cut a {{convert |1|x|8|in|cm|}} board to fit in between the frame. Measure and mark a {{convert |1|x|8|in|cm|}} so that it’s long enough to line up flush with the side parts of your frame. Draw a line to help you cut a straight. Use a handsaw or electric saw to cut the piece of wood to size.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUcRm1vp8UA&feature=youtu.be&t=2m29s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 11.jpg|center]]
#Glue the boards onto the top and bottom of your door. Apply glue to the back of the boards like you did with the side frame pieces. Press the boards in between the side frame and line up the top of the board with the top of the door. Repeat the process on the bottom of the door.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUcRm1vp8UA&feature=youtu.be&t=2m43s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 12.jpg|center]]
#Screw the {{convert |1|x|8|in|cm|}} boards in. While the glue is still wet, use {{convert |1.25|in|cm|}} long screws and place the screws in all four corners of the board. Place additional screws {{convert |6|in|cm|}} apart down the length of the board to secure it.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUcRm1vp8UA&feature=youtu.be&t=2m29s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 13.jpg|center]]
#Mark a {{convert |1|x|4|ft|m|}} board diagonally on the door. The board that runs diagonally will help support your door and improve its stability as well as prevent it from racking. Lay the board diagonally over the frame and use a flat edge to draw lines that line up with the edges of the frame on each end of the board. This should create an angled line that you can cut from your diagonal board.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I17Ez3V3LYE&feature=youtu.be&t=5m8s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 14.jpg|center]]
#Cut the board to fit the outer frame. Use a handsaw or electric saw to cut the angled edge. The board should now be able to fit diagonally on top of the door’s surface.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I17Ez3V3LYE&feature=youtu.be&t=5m20s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 15.jpg|center]]
#Glue and nail the diagonal board in place. Repeat the process that you used for the rest of the frame and glue and nail the diagonal board onto the surface of the door. If you cut everything correctly, the edges on the end of the wood should lay flush with the rest of the frame. Your door now has a frame that will help keep it together.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I17Ez3V3LYE&feature=youtu.be&t=5m37s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 16.jpg|center]]

=== Attaching Hinges to Your Door ===
#Measure and mark where the hinges will go on your shed. Use a tape measure and mark {{convert |7|in|cm|}}, down, from the top of the door frame and {{convert |11|in|cm|}} up from the bottom of the doorframe. If you already have hinges installed on your shed, you can skip this step.<ref>https://www.gardenbuildingsdirect.co.uk/resource/installing-a-shed-door/</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 17.jpg|center]]
#Screw the hinges into the shed with {{convert |1.5|in|cm}} lag screws. Screw in {{convert |1.5|in|cm}} lag screws into the holes on the hinge and into the frame itself. This should secure the hinges to your shed.<ref>https://www.gardenbuildingsdirect.co.uk/resource/installing-a-shed-door/</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 18.jpg|center]]
#Line the door up into the doorframe. Have a friend help you hold the door in place. Use a level to make sure that the door is straight, then open the hinge so that it rests over the surface of your door. Make sure that there is a {{convert |12|mm|in|}} gap in between the door and the shed’s door frame so that the door can properly open.<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rr324YpqWxc&feature=youtu.be&t=48s</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 19.jpg|center]]
#Screw the hinges into the door. While your friend continues to the hold the door in place, use a screwdriver to drive {{convert |1.5|in|cm}} lag screws through the holes in the top hinge and into the door. Then, repeat the process with the bottom hinge. Make sure that the screws are tight and the door feels secured to the shed’s door frame.<ref>http://www.bvforge.com/installation_situations/installing_strap_hinges.htm</ref>[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 20.jpg|center]]
#Open and close your door to test if it works. You should now have a door that can open and close on your shed. If the door is getting stuck on the frame when you try to open it, you may have to sand down the edges of the door with a 36 to 100 grit sandpaper to slightly reduce the door’s size.[[Image:Build Shed Doors Step 21.jpg|center]]
