Our shed door plans show you how to build a shed door using sandwich construction for strength and durability. This door construction builds a shed door that will outlive the shed. The shed door is built using a 38x89 inner frame faced on the inside with 12mm O.S.B. and on the outside there is a layer of sheet exterior siding to match the rest of the shed. We use 3 hinges on the doors and the screws go into the inner 2x4 frame of the door to give extra strength.
Siding: Sheet exterior siding or similar 1200x2400x12mm wood or cement panel siding is specified but you can use any siding you like.
Roof: The roof is framed using 28x140mm boards to build the rafters. It is sheeted with 12mm O.S.B. The plans give you the dimensions and cut angles so you can build the roof rafters on the ground and then put them up on the top plates.
Roof Pitch: 20 degree
Roof Overhang: 174mm on the sides and 38mm on the front and back.
Roofing: 25 year asphalt shingles
Trim: 12x38mm wood, masonite or cement trim materials are used to finish the corners
Floor Load: 22kg per square foot for framed floors. This is the same floor load rating used in building homes.
Roof Snow Load: 18kg per square foot. This is more than adequate for most areas. If you live in an area with a high snow load you should check with your local building department for your local snow load.
