Building shed doors with top and bottom halves.
by: John, shedmaster

Hi, follow my guidelines on the website here for building shed doors. But, use 2 2x4s in the middle of the door, and 2 hinges for each section you want to open. Cut the door in half between the 2 2x4s for a top and bottom half, but only after you have installed the full door to the door jamb.

Hope this helps,
John
