Got tons of pics tonight. Installed the door handle latch deadbolt on the front door today. Wanted to do more, but installing this took a little more finagling than I expected. Had to use a shim, and am actually gonna put a thicker shim in tomorrow to make it work a little better. But for now, I have it installed. Next will be framing around the opening and installing the striker plate and hole for the latch and deadbolt to lock into. Then the front and back can both be locked and entered. I have been waiting to seal up the wall between the storage and bedrooms till I did this so I could still get in. Now I can do it. Makes me happy. So here are the pics.
Installed steel brackets to turn the two door panels into one solid door.
Cutting a hole for the lock.
Cutting out the opening for the deadbolt and latch.
Here I am installing the latch in the opening I cut.
Had to put a shim in to make the door thick enough to install the latch. Will put a thicker more substantial one in tomorrow. Got dark before I could do that today.
Finished door lock latch and handle installed.
More to come tomorrow.
