Specifying Door Swing
Hello just wanted to tell you that from our experience that, the safest way to avoid a mistake when ordering a perching wooden door is to draw a small birds eyes view of the door swing on the order form. That way, the supplier can call it whatever he or she wants, but you'll be covered. (For exterior wooden doors, indicate the interior and the exterior sides of the opening.) How do you determine the swing? Try the "butt in the butts" method.
Stand in the door opening with your butt (as in buttocks) to the butts (as in hinges). Use your arm to mimic the swing of the door. If you use your right arm, the door is a right-handed door; if you use your left arm, it is a left-handed one. Hope you can give it ago at it.
