So we have a door! Isn't she pretty!?

 

This is the first of 4, barn style doors we are going to make for our shed and studio. This door has been a bit of trial and error but we are pretty happy with the result!

 

We special ordered through Bunnings 138 x 18mm Western Red Cedar VJ cladding and, DAR Western Red Cedar for the rails and stiles.

 

I've uploaded as many photos as we remembered to take along the way of the making process, but if you have any questions let me know. :smile:

Re: Barn Style Door

Beautiful work @DIYgals. I love the style you're going with and happy to hear that there are more doors like this to come. It's going to look absolutely stunning.

 

We really appreciate the time you've taken to share the photos and details of your process. It's bound to inspire others in our community to give this a go.

 

Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

Re: Barn-style door for backyard studio

Hi, you have done a beautiful job on the door.  I have a metal shed that I would love to transform into a garden studio and would love to have a door like the one you've made to replace the metal door already on it.

Can you please advise how you attached the wooden door to the metal frame.  Did you have to do any modifications to the existing opening where the metal door was?

 

Thanks

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @ChezzieG. It's fantastic that you've joined us, and many thanks for jumping into the conversation.

 

Let me mention @DIYgals, so they are alerted to your question and kind comments about their project.

 

What type of frame do you currently have on your shed, and is it designed for a lightweight door? You might like to share an image with us. The frame on the @DIYgals shed looks particularly substantial and appears like it might be a direct bolt-on situation.
