Henry Drake works nights and lives in a single story home in the City of Highland. He has two daughters between the age of 16 and 18 years. One night both boyfriends were caught in his daughter bedrooms. They had locked themselves in the largest bedroom. Henry, instead of waiting it out, lost his patience and kicked in the bedroom door. The door could not close unless it was picked up by the door handle. All doors and hardware were purchased at The Home Depot.
This post shows the twelve steps on how to remove, replace and re-hang a six-panel door.
Step 1: Above right fig.1 shows the portable work benches that the door will be placed on to cut each edge. Fig.2 shows that the bedroom door hinges were upside down.
