Loft Hatch and Door Hanging

Nice job today.

Changed a moulded door over to a 15 panel glazed door to start with.

Then added in a loft hatch in the garage as there was no access to the roof.

Fitted lining made on the job with stops and architrave - looked like it had been there from the start by the end. I did however notice that Wimpey Homes had only put 50mm of insulation above this customers utility room and being the nice soul I am I offered to fit the insulation while I was up there fitting some flooring at no extra charge if they got me the insulation.

A nice little job working for nice people - Good way to start the week!


  1. Hey Kevin I hope my door's look half as good as that tidy job :)

  2. Cheers chaps!
    Brian just make sure you plane it to fit first with an even gap all round then wedge it up when marking your hinges. I bet yours will look just as good - let me know how you get on.

  3. Thanks for passing by my earthwoman blog. I was very happy to stumble upon your woodworking blog which has opened me up to a new world of blogs. I'm currently toying with the idea of trying to pick up some woodworking skills with a view to a new career change so it was serendipitous.

  4. Hi Warriorwoman,
    thanks for the comment - be careful taking the step into woodworking, believe me when I say it can be quite addictive! Any questions on anything carpentry dont hesitate to ask.
