How do I change an existing door from opening into the room to opening out? I've had conflicting advise on how to do this. Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks
Most door frames only gave a rabbit on one side to mount the door, so the easiest way is to remove the door and frame, spin it around and reinstall. If you want the door to swing to the same side as it is now, you will have to mortise for the hinges to go in the opposite direction. Considering the amount of work involved , I find it a lot easier and less time consuming to just by a new pre-hung door the way I want it.
