Another project I completed is the doorway between the dining room and the kitchen. This is what it looked like before:
The first thing I did was to make and install the threshold. The kitchen floor is about 2" higher than the dining room floor because of all the leveling I had to do in the kitchen.
I used a piece of 5 1/4" oak flooring for the threshold, I cut both ends of the board at angles because the threshold will lay at an angle.
Once it was cut I cut and installed a shim piece to go below the threshold:
Then I installed the threshold:
With that done I installed the door casing. I found some casing that is very similar to the original casing in the house.
The casing is about an inch smaller than the original, I didn't have any rosettes that matched so I cut some blocks out of the oak flooring.
Once I have new casing cut to match the originals I will re-frame this doorway.
