Is it possible to hinge to a stationary patio door?
I'm hoping someone here can provide some guidance. I'm building a new house and I wanted a 4 panel door to our outside lanai without jambs between the middle double doors and the stationary doors.
(Stationary - Double Doors - Stationary)
(1 - 2 / 3 - 4)
I ordered the doors through 84 lumber and I told the salesman I wanted it to look just like it was on their website.
Well after I received the doors they said that configuration (like the one shown on the website) will not actually work. All 4 panels are stationary! I was amazed and felt that it was false advertising. Neither 84 lumber or ThermaTru would allow me to return the $3800 worth of patio doors (Classic Craft Mahogany).
So the question is can I remove the jambs between the double door and the stationary panels and just hinge to the stationary panel? Assuming I build my own header and firmly attach the stationary panels to the one piece header and 1 side jamb? I really want this too look like a 4 panel door without the bulky jambs between the double doors and stationary panels.
Thanks in advace.
