Here’s a smart idea for a garden shed. Add a Dutch door for easy access to tools while you’re doing your yard work. It’s something I would love to do for my shed.

Two Doors Are Better Than One
This idea would obviously be easiest if it was incorporated into the original construction of a shed. But, after seeing it on a garden tour, I’m seriously contemplating converting my existing shed door into a Dutch door.
Let There Be Light
Not only would it make it really easy to grab tools you need while working, but, if your shed is a dark, old cave like mine is, it would be much easier to see what you’re grabbing.
Classic Z Door
I also like the idea of discouraging little creatures from sneaking in there while the door is open. I have some chipmunks who zot in and out when I’m not looking. I’m sure this would slow them down.
The door style you see here is the classic Z style barn door. This is a good design for amateur woodworkers like me.
