Part 19: Making the door
The door is basically a Any broad, thin surface. of A piece of wood made of three or more layers of wood veneer laminated together with glue. with boards (similar to the Boards used to cover the roof.) glued and fixed to the outside for both strength and looks.
Refer to the plans for Any of the three linear measurements, length, breadth and depth..
Glue and A short nail with a large flat head used for securing roofing felt, plasterboard, sheet metal to wood etc. (or screw) the boards to the plywood.
Ensure the boards overlap the window holes (in the plywood) by 1″ (25mm) all the way around.
Once the glue is dry, paint the door. Once the paint is dry, fit and To secure with nails or screws. the window panes.

Part 21: Installing the door and window
The door opens out, and the widow opens up.
Therefore, hinges need to be fixed to the side A vertical side member of a sash. (Plumb, upright. side Piece of lumber that is part of a frame or structure.) of the door, and to the top The top and bottom frame member of a door or window (not the jamb). Cross member of panel doors or of a sash. Also the upper and lower member of a balustrade or staircase extending from one vertical support, such as a post, to another. The horizontal member of a fence. on the The moving segment of the window, consisting of two side stiles (vertical members), a top rail (horizontal member) and a bottom rail (horizontal member) and muntins..
The door uses three 6″ (150mm) T-hinges and the window uses two 3 1/2″ (90mm) butt-hinges.
Begin fitting the hinges by laying the door and the window on saw-horses or other work platform.
Screw three 6″ (150mm) T-hinges to the side stile of the door, one in line with the top rail, one in line with the A middle horizontal support piece of wood. and one in line with the bottom rail.
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.
Because the window The moving segment of the window, consisting of two side stiles (vertical members), a top rail (horizontal member) and a bottom rail (horizontal member) and muntins. 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 The part of the plywood wall panels that overlaps the door and window frame, and protrudes into the door or window area and covers any gaps between the door/window and the surrounding frame. It acts as a stop for the door and also stops the rain getting in. 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.
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 A metal rod that has a head on one end and threads on the other and is used to fasten together lumber. The most common bolts used or referred to in projects within this website are coach/carriage bolts and hex bolts. catch.
Hang the window following the same procedure.
