Install Some Interior Doors

Many builders leave off the interior doors with sales models to give the models a more open and spacious feeling.

At the close of sales and the completion of the project, when the sales models are converted back to regular units for occupancy, the interior doors are rehung.

One option the builder should consider is hanging a few interior doors in each model in openings having the least foot traffic…such as coat closets and secondary bathrooms.

The prospective homebuyers can thus see the style and design of the interior doors and doorknob hardware…without disturbing the felling of openness of the sales models.

Store the other interior doors in an empty garage in the sales models…or in a storage bin…with both sides of the hinges and hinge pins attached to each door, as shown in Fig. 6.3.  Storing the doors with their hinges attached prevents the problem a few years later at project close-out…of not being able to find the original hinges.

Keep door hinges attached for interior doors for the sales models…removed and stored in a nearby garage or container…to provide a more open and spatially larger feel in side the models…and easier movement for sales models foot traffic.

I worked in building construction as a field superintendent and project manager. I have four books published by McGraw-Hill on housing construction (1995-98) under Bart Jahn, and have eight Christian books self-published through Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). I have a bachelor of science degree in construction management from California State University Long Beach. I grew up in Southern California, was an avid surfer, and am fortunate enough to have always lived within one mile of the ocean. I discovered writing at the age of 30, and it is now one of my favorite activities. I am currently working on more books on building construction.
