Door Dilemma...


For reasons I won't go into...I have to install an interior door but can't mount it "on the inside edge" of the door jamb as is normally done. In other words, the door will almost be in the center of the jamb. What do the pros do if this rare? situation arises as far as the hinges go (the pin side)? I could router a slot for the hinge pin part of the hinge...or is there another way? I realize the door will only open 90 degrees when installed that way...and that is okay. Thanks!

Without going into a lot of detail, you sound like you have the general idea....there are few trisks to doing this, like making sure the mortises you cut for the hinges are true or plumb, stuff like that...just pay close attention to detail, and you will get it done.
