First shed

Hi guys, cool forum. thought I'd share my recent project which I think turned out looking nice but I would do things differently if I could redo it, I was learning along the way and still need to learn a lot. This was done kind of in a rush and I was looking to cut back on costs too much. Oh well. I am also looking to make a small canopy above the door, which btw has started hanging a little lower than when I first fixed it on the hinges.

Well done. I would use strap hinges for the door.

Hi johnedp34, thanks. I do see strap hinges on most proper sheds, I guess I should have invested in those instead of using these which I had laying around I hope that will fix this sagging problem..

I also feel like I might have overextended on the size of the door(It's very convenient for what I need though)..it's 120cm wide and heavy.

Welcome to the forum, Christopher! Add your location to your profile, please.

Nice looking shed, looks well built.

The hinges should be fit into the wood for strength. Look at any interior door for what I mean.

Strap hinges can surface mount, but the strap should be as long as possible.

I can get ahold of some long strap hinges(I should get 40inch ones for my 48inch wide door if I'm not mistaken).

One question, should the strap hinges types also be fit into the wood? I'm looking at photos and they usually seem to be secured with bolts and nuts.

Strap hinges can surface mount. Ideally with through bolts on the door. Lags or bolts on the frame.
