another challenging one here .. we came on board after the hole was already framed, and it turned out that the doors were too short and too wide, and the hinges were in the middle of the door ‘sandwhich’ ... ‘houston, we have a problem.’ lots of steps to get from start to finish and you can read all about it on this blog post.
