Is a 4' Shed Door Too Big?
by: John

Hi Brian,

That would be a very heavy door and I believe down the road you would have some problems with it just due to the tremendous weight. It may be ok after the initial building of your shed, but over time with the changes in wood and some sagging going on I honestly believe you would be better off making 2 shed doors to fill the 4' opening.
