I have most of my room isolation planned, I'm just stuck on the doors.
I will be closing the 5' opening that currently goes into the theater and installing a 32-36" door.
I have a 32" door in the back of the theater going into my office. That wall is solid concrete, so I won't be changing the size of that door
Here is what the doors in my house look like:
They are solid wood doors, and I plan to fill the panels with self leveling compound which will add some nice mass, then green glue and a layer of MDF on each side.
I need to replace the hinges, and probably add a hinge. I will then replace the door stops.
I have lots of 32" doors that I have removed around the house, but the only 36" door is my front door, which I will probably also replace which would give me a nice 36" solid wood door to use.
So, at this point, I wonder if it just makes more sense to use some 2x6 to make a custom frame instead of buying a prehung door and messing with it?
What are the suggestions on how to extend the hardware? Should I patch up the holes from the existing hardware before doing all of this?
