The door to my woodworking shop (shed) has essentially disintegrated.
I've priced a couple of basic external doors at Home Depot and Lowes,
but thought it would be more fun to build one myself. Does anyone have
plans for a basic external door they could point me too? I'm going the
google route as well, but thought I'd ask the experts here.
I've built a couple of doors for the two sheds I have. Both sheds have
door openings of 8' wide and 7' high. I used 3/4" exterior plywood for
the base door material and then used 1" x 4" pine to frame the door and
make a cross buck on the bottom just for aesthetics.
Sorry, I had no plans. Built them on-the-fly from measurements taken
from my door openings.
Here are some pics.
never painted the backs of the doors for about a year after I painted
the fronts. Since the doors were recessed, I used the regular butt
hinges on them, but found that the supplied screws were not strong
enough to overcome the weight of the 3/4" plywood doors plus trim, so I
wound up using screw bolts and nuts.
I have to get around to putting a ridge vent on that shed too, since
there are no gable vents.
The original shed had that home made cupola as a vent when the rafters
were exposed. Once we (she) converted it to a pool house, and I
insulated and put the wainscotting on the rafters, I had to install
ridge venting on both sides of the cupola.
