Part 21: Installing the door and window - continued

Continued from previous page. fixing a hinge to the shed door

Do you want the door opening out to the left or to the right? That preference will determine what side of the door you fix the hinges on.

The window will need two 3 1/2" (90mm) butt-hinges screwed to the top rail but they will need to be sunk 5/16" (5mm) into the rail.

Why?

Because the window sash is the same thickness as the surrounding frame. If the hinges were not checked into the top rail, then the sash would bind or jam against the stop when being opened or closed.
By sinking the hinge into the rail, it brings the top of the sash away from the stop, thus eliminating the possibility of binding or jamming. Once the hinges are on, the door and window are ready to hang in place.

To install-
Place the door in the door opening and pack the sides, top, and bottom (between the door and the opening) so there is even gap all the way around.
Then screw the hinges to the surrounding frame.

Take out the packers, align and fix the bolt catch.

Hang the window following the same procedure.
