We are installing an outside door to gain acces to our deck. We have hot water baseboard running completely along that wall. I am assuming that I will have to redirect the copper pipe down under the floor and back up on the other side of the door to leave this heater along the wall and allow for the door to be installed. I have never had a furnace before so my question is how do I drain the water from it before I start? Is there a website anyone knows of that documents this kind of handywork?

Are you saying that the baseboard heat is blocking your new entrance for the door?? And that is would have to be partially removed to allow for construction of your doorway?? Hot water baseboard heating is hooked up to your hot water heater. Look at the ceiling where your baseboard heater is located. There should be a valve near there to turn off the water supply, and somwhere along the line a relief valve that you can turn to drain the water out(don't forget the bucket) Most of the time you don't need to redirect the copper piping unless you are adding another heater or changing the location.
