Bathroom Door Installation

by on Mar.20, 2011, under Windows & Doors

At the end of January, I had done a very temporary job of putting the bathroom door up.  Because the frame was too long for the opening, with the tile floor installed, I wasn’t able to install it in the correct position.  It worked for that weekend, but now I needed to finish the job.

So when I arrived in March, this was the state of the door:

French Door Install
03 May 2008.
We cut an X in the housewrap, as we had done while installing windows.

Then we used the jig saw to cut out the door opening. As it turned out, the door that arrived from our special order was 2″ shorter than we expected, so we had to install a spacer above the door to fill in the empty space. We then folded the housewrap in, as with the windows.

East Side View
21 April 2008.
The right hand side of the East end will be used for utilities entrance panels and such. So there’s no window on that side for the bathroom.

We ran out of Tyvek tape (which is GREAT stuff, by the way… So we will finish taping the window on our next trip. The Lowes Housewrap held up very well through the winter, with no signs of fraying or tearing.

Sill Flashing

The first order of business was to trim out the back door. We started by installing flashing under the threshold. This should help prevent any water damage from the outside exposure.
