      For the door could you use a piece of 1" foam, carve the rail slots, then either carve brick or block look on the outside then paint to look like brick, block or stone? The door would then open up like a garage door.

      Roofing nails have a rubber washer to seal the hole and for the most part they do the job well. Have you looked at the self sticking membrane for water tightness then maybe sheet metal roofing over that?

      Flangeways should be about 1/8th inch wide and deep.

      Nice build but man pretty stout material. I used the fiberglass roof panels that are uv resistant and you use screws with rubber washers to keep water out. Mines been in place for 7 years and no water damage or leakage. Later RJD

      Mine opens through a slot, using drawer sliders for smoothness.  Designed this way to stop people from getting in. With the shed roof locked, you can't open the doors because the roof is in the way.

       

      I was thinking of using some sort of insulating foam but I was also thinking of filling in the space with maybe grout or something around the door.
