Hanging an Engineered Wood Six-Panel Door

Project: Modern Colonial, Episode 11, Part 2

The dining room paneling is almost finished, and Bob talks with Ben LaRochelle from Drummond Designs to learn how they fabricated the design plans from architectural models, stock plans, and lot requirements using a laptop computer.

Upstairs, Bob Ryley is hard at work in the master bedroom, beginning with a door installation leading into the master bathroom. Jim Daniels from Woodport is on hand to discuss the features of the door with Bob. Finally, Ryley works on trimming out the doorframe and windows.

Part 2: Hanging an Engineered Wood Six-Panel Door
Carpenter Bob Ryley and Jim Daniels (of Woodport Interior Doors) join Bob on location to hang a new door in the master bathroom. The pre-hung, six-panel door being installed is made from medium density fiberboard, an engineered lumber product made from wood chips. The chips are compressed to create a sturdy, stable product that is easy to paint.
Part 3: Shimming, Centering, and Hanging a Door
Part 4: Installing Interior Window Casings and Sill
This project focuses on the construction of a Colonial-style home built with both history and the future in mind. While the 4-bedroom, 4-bath home will have a traditional exterior and interior detailing, the plan will suit the needs of a modern family, including easy-maintenance fireplaces, a great room, master suite, sun room, 3-car garage, and a large walk-out basement with plenty of room for recreation and indoor/outdoor living.
