Adding Exterior French Doors

by Cisco
(Houston, TX, USA)

Could the shed plans accommodate adding French doors instead or what is needed to make these additions? Our plan is to build a garden shed that doubles as a design element for our landscape. Thank you

Adding French Doors
by: John

The only thing that you need to double check is the wall height of the shed plans you are purchasing. Typically you will need a rough opening height of 82", along with a 2x6 header for a 5' wide opening. If your french doors are wider than that, and you are placing them on a load bearing wall, then you will need to go with a 2x8 header.

Please send me an email to shedking@gmail.com and let me know which plans you have in mind and I can help you with the dimensions you will need to accomodate your french door installation.

Hope this helps to answer your question!
