Question How to fix shed door

I have a shed door, that needs quite a bit of work.
  • corners are busted, not sure how to get these together again
  • crossbeam is broken

About the cross beam, I'm thinking maybe a piece of wood or metal and reattach the pieces in the wood that is still good and not so weathered. Something like this?


For the corners, I'm not sure if there is a metal brace that is a triangle, l-shape that would fix these easily


Here are pictures.

I would take the door down and lay it flat and re-do the wood framing since much of it is shot. You can install gussets in the corners like it has now and/or a diagonal like in your first photo.

.... and use 2x4s that aren't finger jointed.

Attempting to patch it up is a waste of time. As has been suggested, rebuild the door with all new framing. And install a rain guard above the door to keen ran water away from the inside.
