We still have
4 5 openings in the new construction that will need doors.
The master bathroom is laid out in such a way that even without a door it is very private but a bathroom door is still mandatory, n’est-ce pas?
Also in the master suite we need a door for the master closet shown above.
Instead of one large door, we’re going to mimic the pantry doors except these will open into the closet so they can stand open without impeding the hallway.
In the conservatory downstairs we have a long closet that will also get the double door treatment.
Two sets of Shaker-style double doors which will open into the room and make the closet accessible.
The final door is an extra-wide (36-inches) door on the conservatory bathroom to make it possible for a wheelchair to comfortably enter the bathroom.
The opening for these various doors are different sizes so we needed to find out what size door to order. The rule is: measure the opening and subtract 2 inches. For example the conservatory bathroom opening is 38 inches wide, thus a 36-inch door.
To order the correct swing of the door: Stand with your back where the hinges will be and decide left or right. Whichever hand swings that same way as the door determines a left or right door.
I have door hardware for the double doors but will need knobs for the other two. It’s always something.
Do you get all this building lingo or let someone else worry about it?
