Our new doorway

We have our new doorway between the entrance lobby and the hallway. There’s storage space behind the facing wall - plenty of room for shoes and stuff!

The door will hinge on the right hand side of this photo and swing towards the front door - more for emergency exit reasons but there’s also no obstructions swinging it wide open that way.

For the uninitiated this would make it a left hand reverse swing door - doors are “handed” according to which side the hinges are on, and from the side of the door you would be on if you were entering the room.

It’s about a metre wide at the moment but we need to add about 100mm to the left hand side to allow room for the door frame… it wouldn’t look good if the door closed right against the wall. It’ll still be wide enough to get a wheelchair through it.
