The door "turned inside out" was specially ordered, but it did not enter the opening. We inserted it with difficulty and are waiting for readers' advice

He said a hundred times that our family are great masters of creating problems for themselves. So this time it happened. Entrance door. An ordinary front door. What could be easier? I also thought it was a trivial question. Until we decided to order a metal door from the garage to the house.

We welcome you to the channel, where we, an ordinary city family, tell you how #do it yourself build #Vacation home. From the foundation to the ridge. I wonder what we do? subscribe to the channel and watch.

When you have a house outside the city, whether you like it or not, you have to start the car. Even if it takes only 30 minutes to get there. You can't reach it on foot. And where there is a car, there is a garage for storage.

It's nice when the garage is built into the house. I drove up, pressed a button and the gate slowly rose. I drove in, left, opened another door - and you are in the house. No rain, no snow, no frost. Grace.

You have no idea how many copies were broken during the design. I was in favor of a garage built into the house, and the Chief Architect was categorically against it.

It almost came to a divorce. As a result, the victory remained with me.

I am incredibly glad that I managed to insist on my own. And even if it turned out not of a huge size, there is enough space for one car.

The garage was made a "conditionally warm room". This means that the outer wall of the garage is insulated like the rest of the house, but there is no heating in it.. This is enough to keep the temperature around zero degrees. Plus or minus.

In relation to living quarters, it is still a street. The first heating season showed that there is absolutely nothing without a door. He closed the doorway with a curtain, but the blow was brutal.

The garage is not too wide. Enough for a car, but not too much space to open the door. Opened wide, it takes about a meter. So, for sure, someone especially clever, opening the door will certainly crack the car, leaving a dent. And this means that it should only open inside the house.

But with this an ambush - metal entrance doors always open outward. And it is impossible to put it "on the contrary". If you do this, it will simply be painted from the inside of the house, the decorative trim will remain in the garage and it will also be locked from the garage. And unlock, by the way, too.

What was needed was the "inside out door".

It's not difficult at all, right? Do you just need to make a decorative finish on the other side? Aha, how! On the other hand, then there will be a hole. What is needed is the door "stamped in the other direction". So we need a plant that can do it. It turned out that not everyone can do it.

Do you understand what this means? This means that we had to contact the plant and do it on special order. Twice as expensive. Well, that's why it's always like this? Why do we always create problems for ourselves?

Waited for over a month. Finally, they brought it. Wonderful. Opens inward, everything is as intended.

We tried it on. Damn, ambush. The door is wider than the opening. Centimeters by 5. And how did we measure? And the house, as you remember, is concrete. He remembered the Chief Architect with a kind word, took the grinder and began to cut. I fiddled for almost an hour. It seems to have pushed in.

To begin with, I sawed through the wall with a grinder
Made cuts on a concrete core
And knocked out with a puncher

Placed with a slight outward slope. So that left open, it closes itself. It turned out great. Everything is as it should - the door opens inward, decorative trim and locks from the inside. See for yourself.

Opens inward. Everything we wanted

There is only one question left. Platbands. Leave black or cover with white overlays? You can do this and that. We cannot decide in any way. What do you like best?

Two options. Which to choose?
