Part 19: Making the door
The door is basically a sheet of plywood with boards (similar to the roof boards) glued and fixed to the outside for both strength and looks.
Refer to the plans for dimensions.
Glue and nail (or screw) the boards to the plywood.
Ensure the boards overlap the window holes (in the plywood) by 1" (25mm) all the way around.
Once the glue is dry, paint the door. Once the paint is dry, fit and fix the window panes.

The window is made from 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" (90mm x 45mm) wood, rebated.
Refer to the plans for measurements.

Part 21: Installing the door and window
The door opens out, and the widow opens up.
Therefore, hinges need to be fixed to the side stile (vertical side member) of the door, and to the top rail on the window sash.
The door uses three 6" (150mm) T-hinges and the window uses two 3 1/2" (90mm) butt-hinges.
Begin fitting the hinges by laying the door and the window on saw-horses or other work platform.
Screw three 6" (150mm) T-hinges to the side stile of the door, one in line with the top rail, one in line with the middle rail and one in line with the bottom rail. Continued next page...
