The Master Closet Doors Are Installed!

Remember our poll for helping us decide what kind of closet doors to install on the master closet? We decided on really narrow double doors that open in. After much painstaking work, we now have two lovely sets of doors!  Jim has only the knobs left to install, but all the trimwork, hinges, and catches are finished.

Here’s a full-length look:

One side is latched, but the other is just pulled to.  Until the handles are installed, it’s a little hard to close both sides unless you step inside the closet and push them to.  The problem with that is then you’re stuck in the closet and have to beg someone to come let you out. 🙂 Jim built put together EVERYTHING – the jam, the trim, the doorstop, the hinge placement, the door catches – a fine bit of craftsmanship, I must say.

The doors push open toward the inside of the closet:

One of the coolest things about the doors is that Jim used adjustable ball catches.

The ball catch is spring-loaded and can be twisted to adjust it up or down to compensate for the door gap and latch tension. You install the ball catch into the top of each door and the matching strike plate on the top of the door frame. Looks great!

    He did do an excellent job. I am working on trim myself today and I tell you what…its not such an easy job at all.
    I am thinking of turning my spare bedroom into a master closet but I guess I better get this kitchen done first. LOL
