as mentioned in an earlier thread, we will be building an Edenbrae home.
Currently we are renting a Clarendon home. One of many things which has been badly done in this house is the hanging of the internal doors.
EVERY SINGLE door either swings open or swings closed. NOT ONE door stays as you leave it. I've lost count of the times I have opened a door, turned around to do something & when I've turned back, have walked into the !@#$% thing
I've been told that this is because the doors/architraves are not level.....is this true
MY QUESTION : how do we prevent this from happening in our new house?
Am I being totally anal about this ?
All suggestions welcome (except that I'm being anal of course)

Will absolutely make sure we do this ! Such a logical suggestion ......... should have thought of this
I'm finding that the building game is not so easy for novices. There's a lot to consider & a lot that can be missed - and a lot that we WILL miss, I bet
Thanks once again.

Could be a few things. Could be poor workmanship from the carpenter, however most cases that I have seen that cause this is the painter.
Carpenter hangs them in the fix, painter removes them to be painted then slaps them back on. It annoys my partner to no end as it looks like he has done the bad job.

Also, mind that a fairly insulated garage will retain heat much longer out of a hot car engine, whilst this is welcome in winter, it could mean that you could only park…
