No, I built them both myself using wood at Home Depot. Get the hardware off of amazon it’s way cheaper. The double door is barn wood from Home Depot which is hard to work with without gaps. Get tongue and groove pine at Home Depot for the door and regular pine planks for the pieces to hold the door together.
