How do I change my shed door so that it opens the other way?

To change a single shed door so that it opens outwards the other way, remove the door by unscrewing the hinges from the shed panel the door is fixed into. 

Then rotate the door and place it back into the doorway. 

Screw the hinges into the shed panel on that side, supporting the door from the inside. 

Then reorientate the lock on the door - so unscrew it from the block on the back of the door frame, turn it 180 degrees and screw back on to the block (use the key for guidance for the best position). 

The video guide at shows how to do all this. it is best done as a two-person job.
