Installation of wooden entrance door
Upon finishing assembling of entrance door, we can see the real sizes of the door panel, and can adjust the door frame to them.
Join pillars with crossbars.
When all parts of door panel were fit up, the elements of angle joints were partially cut off. If you have no experience of making such items, be careful: it may turn out to be a bit incorrect (see the image).
It is clear that everything still holds together, but not as solid as before.
We have decided not to make it over. The connection is stable, and crevices can be filled up with wooden wedges. To provide additional strengthening, we fixed metal angles.
Fix back plates to side structures. The second end of these plates will be fixed on the bars in the door frame.
Before installing the door case in the frame, put two layers of insulation in the low aperture.
The case is installed in the aperture, wedged by small wooden wedges, and is accurately put on the levels and by wall surface.
When the door case is finally fixed on its place, you can screw back plates to the beam in the door frame.
The next step is to embed hinges into the door panel. Since the door is heavy, we have decided to use 4 door hinges with bearings instead of 2.
After that, door panel with embed hinges is put close to the door case and is installed on required height with the help od wooden desks laid under it. When the door is installed, you can screw the hinges to the case with the help of wood screws.
The door is installed! If you make everything correctly, it will seat in instantly, and will be closed without any problems.
The next step is installation of door lock with a handle.
The last step is to wall up the crevices between the door frame and walls of the blockhouse.
This is what we get in the result:
Now we only need to color the door and the door frame, but it can be done when the weather becomes warmer.
