When in doubt, make a template...Consistent reveals and smooth operation was important for these 11' tall pivot doors which will have gaskets installed to dampen mechanical noise from the room behind. A close study of hinge specifications and sketches is a good first step. But actual round-over bits available for profiles, and challenges with installation tolerances may not be obvious in sketches. This is an example of our carpenters making and fine tuning a template prior to working on the actual door slabs. After the first round of templates, we also had a chance to swap one profile and change the order of how two doors opened.
You only get one chance to rough in an item. If you discover something needs to be moved at the end of the project, chances are, framing members, insulation, or costs of patching will prevent you from moving it. We plan rough-ins based on final product specifications such as these electric meter, disconnect, and solar panel boxes. When the boxes arrive on site the rough-ins allow the boxes to be evenly spaced and centered on the section of wall.
