    When I bought my new Z I knew it would not fit thru the shed doors in the front, so I had my kids help me put a garage door opening into one side of the shed. I love doing this kind of work.

    You need to support the header better. Double up the 2x4's on each side or you will be replacing the door, walls, header within a few years. JMO.

    I agree. Definately not enough support, double up them 2x4's.

    The 2 X 4's are doubled up. You just can't see them because they are behind the door track. The pic below shows them, one of them is pressure treated.
