Doing the Doors

I've started work on the interior doors. There are 6 of them all together. Each one is a 30" fir single panel door made by Rouge Valley Doors. The hardware is oiled bronze with glass knobs from Rejuvenation. 5 of the door latches are tube latches, which are very easy to install. You just have to drill out a 7/8" hole about 3 1/2" deep and the tube shaped latch assembly slides right in. Then you just have to drill another 1/2" hole crosswise for the door knob shaft. I installed the latch and hinges on the 1st door and I hope to have it hung by tomorrow. Here are some pictures.

Nice door! We have similiar doors in our house. Those new locksets sound a lot easier that the old mortise style ones.

@laurie, thanks for your kind words.

@derek, yes, I like the tube latch. But, I will still need to put in a mortise latch for the bathroom door that needs both a knob and skeleton key lock (more later).

@sheila, ha! This is Jenn's room and she picked the color. I'll make sure she reads gets your comment. :-)

Hey Greg, are your handles glass or crystal or plastic?

They are glass. I got them from Rejuvenation. Plastic is a big no no in Craftsman (natural materials are stressed).

Greg and Jenn, beautiful doors! If I could be so bold as to ask the price per door? I'm guessing that you bought slabs and not pre-hung? Was pre-hung an option? Are the doors custom or stock? Once again beautifull doors!

Hi Kevin. The doors are stock 30" fir panel and frame from Rogue Valley. There is a link to their web site in the original post. I think I paid about $200 per door, but I can't remember exactly. I believe there is an option to get them pre-hung, but I wanted to use those specific hinges.
