Door: 3'-10-1/2" x 3'-10-1/2" or 3'-10 1/2" x 5'- 1 1/2" door built using sandwich construction for strength and durability. Our door plan shows you how to build a shed door that will outlive the shed. The shed door is built using a 2x4 inner frame faced on the inside with 1/2" O.S.B. or T1-11 and on the outside there is a layer of T1-11 to match the rest of the shed. We use 2 hinges on the doors and the screws go into the inner 2x4 frame of the door to give extra strength.
Siding: T-111 exterior siding. Other sidings such as vinyl may be used.
Roof = The roof is framed using 2x4's to build the rafters. It is sheeted with 1/2" 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: 4/12, this means that for every 4 inches of rise there is 12 inches of run horizontally.
Roof Overhang: 4" on the front and back. 1" on the sides.
Roofing = 25 year asphalt shingles.
Trim = 1x4 and 1x6 wood, masonite or cement trim materials are used to finish the corners, roof eves, facia, and door.
