Hi, Thank you for the opportunity to be part of this forum. I drew the short straw on Australia's Parliament House project in Canberra. Architect No. 664 Doors and Hardware. Most of the 7500 doors were in metal framed plasterboard faced drywall. I got a bit obsessed and never got back into architecture. I've still got lots to learn. I'm interested in doors in square-set plaster work without visible door frames or timber trim.

7500 doors!!!!!! id run from that one lmao

welcome to site!
Picks, Thanks for the interest. For drywall folk pivot doors have lots of advantages. The jambs are not structural elements. The floor carries the vertical load and the head stops the door overturning. I use a TrimTex PVC capping section (with perforated sides) over the stud and the cut plasterboard edge. A wobbly bead of adhesive on the stud allows a few millimetres of adjustment and you can eliminate planing the doors. I can't work out why drywall folk don't hang internal cheap residential doors. Why not?​
