Adding french doors to dining room
We are wanting to add french doors to our finished dining room. There are 2 entrances and both are already framed so we will not be adding pre-hung doors. They will be added to the existing frame.
1) first entrance is 36.5" wide. We were going to go with a 36" swing in door. Would the extra 0.5" be eaten up between the gap on the hinge side and the knob side?
2) the larger entrance is 49" wide and we were going to go with two 24" swing in doors. Same question. Do we need to worry about the extra 1" or will it be okay given gaps on the 2 hinge sides and the gap between the 2 doors? If not, how much should we build out the existing frame so that it fits properly?
Also, for the larger opening we can't decide if we should go with one turn style handle and one dummy, or two dummy handles and the door would be secured in place using one of those ball/recessed cup latches. Any recommendations?
Thanks in advance,
