Flipping a door swing
Hi all, we just moved into our house and we noticed that the door that goes from our laundry room into our garage opens outwards (into the garage) left to right. When open, it:
a) hits the car parked there rendering that parking spot useless
b) conceals the garage door opener and light switch - I essentially have to open the door, step into the garage, close the door to turn on the light and/or open the garage.
I've attached a picture which would better explain what I want to do.
I can see why the old owners switched the swing of the door from inside to outside - they got a new washer and dryer and the inside swing would hit the dryer. So they made it swing outside in the opposite direction. But it's completely made useless the garage space and access to the light switch and opener. I need to switch it back to the inside BUT int he opposite direction (flip the door upside down and inside).
Can this be done? I'm thinking of removing and flipping both inside and outside trim, flip the threshold and flip the door.
Thanks in advance!
