Hanging a new interior door


To be honest, if you have the skill to make the frame from scratch then you should have no problems hanging a door!
B&Q have how-to leaflets that show you how to do it and as they say, a picture paints a thousand words.
basically you end up cutting out space on the door for two hinges, but you first have decide which type of hinges you want as there are several varieties. Its important to get them in teh right spot at teh top and bottom of the door, in older doors tehre is a cross member at the top and bottom so placing them across these is strongest.
offer the door up to the hole using wedges, mark out where the hinges go in the frame and cut these out with a chisel to the hinge depth - thats pretty much it except for loads of adjusting!

I agree with nicknacknoo. If you made the frame by scratch hanging the door is not much more difficult at all. In case you can't find any of the leaflets he wrote about here is a link that shows some of the basics for chiseling out the hinge area and stuff.


If hung correctly, and you are carfull on your mesurments. There really shouldent be much adjusting to do.
