rounded door

ok, most of my walls are done as is subfllor. next is the entrance door. the door(s) on my 88 ward is a typical bi-fold but is not square. the front top corner is rounded. anyone ever istalled a house or rv style door on one of these? if so, how? i was given a house door that is metal on outsides with glass in center, but the top right corner will have to be modified. all ideas welcome!

Re: rounded door

How about a picture so we can see what you have to work with?

Re: rounded door

How wide is the door, how tall is the door? How wide is the door opening at the widest part? How tall is the door opening?
Are you a welder?

Re: rounded door

I don't think that door will work, looks like you would be cutting into glass.

If you had a solid door (no glass) you could cut it to fit and then add a smaller glass window later, OR... you could square off the opening and use a narrower door--the door is smaller but the opening will be about the same as what you have now with the bifold in inside the doorway.

Re: rounded door

you might try the door upside down..... glass on bottom.....and trim the solid portion of the door. maybe install another window in it.

a metal wrap door isnt the easiest to work with..... something will have to cover your new cut edge.

Weld the door pieces together and re hinge it.
