Under stair storage access doors.
« on: March 22, 2008, 01:06:13 PM »
 Here's a little storage area door I just did , totally non code conforming due to fire containment codes , but hey there was on permit pulled on this one  ;)

 RO ,



we didn't sheet rock the closet to save $$ , those brick  in the back ground are from a fireplace backed up on that wall.

 

  Doors installed ,



 3/4" shop Birch paint grade doors hung off Blum euro / concealed hinges ,
 


 When the doors come to a point like these do you have to relieve the back edge like I did here , I knew this was going to happen , DAMHIKT, so I cut and edge banded the top corner in the shop before I took them to the site.





 The blue tape are  temporary handles to open the doors .

When in doubt , build it stout with something you know about .

You had one image not wanting to come up, PEG. I took the liberty of doing a little remodel on the image link.

Nice access for the area. Push / spring / magnetic catch going in there?  It has a name, I don't know it off hand.  ???
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

If you didn't have the time or money to do it right in the first place, when will you get the time and money to fix it?

Good job - thanks for the details, PEG.


Temporary handles. hmm 

Does that mean I have to change out my permanent handles?

 Thanks Mtn D .

 The hinges themselves are spring loaded , no catch's needed . You can get them , the hinges, un sprung as well then use a touch latch / mag type catch , which I thought of but decided handle would be more user friendly as this is a teenage boys basement / bedroom . With it's own door to outside , which can again DAMHIKT , can be a issue in and of it's self [shocked] [frus]

::)   I'd have that barricaded until (a) they're married or (b) they move out.
