victorian interior doors
I live in a victorian. The door hinges are mounted directly to the lath of the walls and the molding around the door.
The entire opening is 3 3/4" thick.
Over the 126 years (7 owners, one rented to 6 different tenants in 8 years) since this house was constructed, the molding and lath have rotted chipped and cracked away. so now the door no longer sits right in the "frame." It rubs the carpet, and hits the molding above the top hinge.
How can I fix this? Can I put a new door frame in? what do you reccomend?
