Plans needed for Pole Barn Storage Shed with Sliding Door


Hi all, I am wanting to build a 15'x10' storage shed using pole barn type construction. It will have dirt floors and a simple slanted roof. I want it to have a sliding door similar to the one on The New Yankee Workshop. Does anyone know of any links or websites on the net that has plans for such a shed? I did a search using Google but I could not locate anyplace with plans for the type of shed that I am wanting to build.
Here is a link to a picture of something similar to what I am wanting to build except I want a sliding front door on it.

Andy,
I know Menards, Lowes, 84 Lumber all sell "pole Barn" packages. I believe that they would also help you design and give you a "cut List" of material.
Good luck, Mike

I built one of those this May. That link looks like a horse windbreak. Tractor Supply Co. or Quality Farm & Fleet or your local tackshop should have hanging, sliding door hardware.
Based on that picture, you should be able to figure out what you need, material-wise. 4 corner posts, one post on either side of the door, some intermediate posts, probably one per side. 2x6 to run horizontally every 2 feet. Miscellaneous corner bracing. Sheathing to cover. Roof pitched a foot or two, 2x6 rafters with 1x4 purlins between. Sheet metal roofing. I did the material take-off for a 10x16 in about 11 minutes.
Good luck. -Phil Crow

I finished building a 12X20 shed on piers and build a 6' track door on the side and also a 36" door. I bought the hardware from a local hardware store. Track and roller hangers. They were made by Stanley. Search for track+door There are several companys that make the track and rollers. Lots of sizes and layouts. Very simple to install and also easy to build your doors for it. Link to Stanley track door and hardware. Most good hardware stores in area's that have agriculture and horses will be able to order or supply what you will need. I built the ramp to the sliding door with clearance so when the door is slid closed and locked, it cannot be pulled out from the bottom for someone to pry it open from the bottom. Makes for a very secure door that way.

Thanks for the hints guys. The sliding door was the only thing that had me worried. I will check the places that you mentioned for the hardware.
