Flipping a Door & Learning from Errors

Robin wanted her door turned (aka flipped) around and it's not as simple as it sounds. I had to trim the door down, then I had to recess the hinges into the door and door jamb. It was a tight fit, so I sanded down the side and bottom to make it work because nothing is square in this old home. Then I had to cut a hole for the catch and recess that plate. After I re-installed the door handles, we learned they do not work because they stick-out to when on the other side.

There is no textbook for projects like this.

You just have to go slow and learn from your mistakes.
