Door for a Shed

I am looking to purchase a door for a shed I am building. The shed will be sided with vinyl siding so I'm looking to find a vinyl door. My shed wall is only 6' 4.5" so I'm looking for a 6' door.. I've seen 6' vinyl doors that come with the pre-built sheds that Home-Depot sells. Does anyone know where I could purchase one of those or something similar?

Not sure where to buy a vinyl door, but you probably wouldn't be satisfied with one anyway. Why not go ahead and build your own cross buck door from plywood and 1x4's? You may like the aesthetics even more than the vinyl one.

As chandler said, build your own and here is one plan:

You can even buy a woodcore vinyl clad storm door with a plain bottom that you can cut to size.

Shed door

If you decide to build the door, leave off a section of the siding to allow temporary entrance and exit, and build the door in the opening with proper clearances around the edges. This is a good way to fit the door to the opening. Secure with temporary blocks and screws until hinges are installed.
