Step 1: Purchase a Door to fit the rough opening in the wall.

The framed in rough opening for the door is always around 2" wider then the purchased door (not including the jamb around the door). This allows for adjustment when hanging the door to achieve plumb "level".

Measure 1/2" in from the rough opening on the hinge side of the door. Using a 6' or 4' level draw a level line down the drywall.

Step 3: Attach 6 Door installation brackets to the outside of the door jamb.

Attach the Quick Door Hanger installation brackets. Place a bracket behind each of the three hinges. Attach the remaining three brackets on the the other side of the jamb. The first bracket 8" from the top, the next bracket just above the latch stop, and the final bracket 8" from the bottom of the door.

Step 4: Place the door into the opening.

Using the plumb line on the wall, screw in the top bracket on the hinge side of the door. Then screw in the next 2 brackets using the same reference notch as the first bracket. After the 3 brackets are screwed into the wall using the same reference notch for each, the door is now level. Now check the reveal (gap between door and door jamb) when screwing in the final 3 brackets. Start at the top of the door and check the reveal when screwing in the top bracket. Check the reveal when screwing in the final 2 brackets.

Step 5: Install the casing (trim) around the installed door.

Finish the installation process by installing the door trim.

Caulking and painting behind hinges

I'm installing interior casing on a door. The quarter-inch reveal all around provides only that much working space to get caulk and a paint brush behind standard hinges.
Do you pros and semi-pros actually remove the door and unscrew the hinge leaves to caulk and paint the casing trim? This is also an exterior door, so there are four extra long screws going through the hinge leaves into the frame! Unscrew all that just to finish the interior casing?
Yea or nay?

You have several choices

Home Depot, Lowes, etc. sell several kinds of interior doors, both blank (no holes or hinges) and pre-hung. Most of these doors that I've seen are usually primed white. If you still have the exisiting door, you can take the door to a door-matching service at a lumberyard and they'll duplicate the holes and hinge placement. And you might get a better door in the process. The alternative is to buy a pre-hung door. This comes with a frame, so you'll have a lot more work removing the old door and installing the new one. Finally, there are people out there who will come into your home and install a new door

Most logical order is as follows

I have been doing home remodels since the mid-1980s and have seen many a DIY home remodel go astray.
The very first step is to formulate a plan and a scope of work, what exactly are you going to do? Details. Details. How much is it going to cost, who is going to do the work, You or a contractor? And establish a time frame exactly how long is it going to take.
Step 1: Demo all areas that are going to be remodeled Restrooms; (to include removing the cabinets and flooring (subflooring if needed) toilet and tub/shower surround. Kitchen; cabinets and flooring (sub flooring if needed) all doors in home with the Exception at this time of entry doors you still need to lock the place up

Work on unit

In berkeley, they have to provide compensation for loss of function of a unit, or pay for another space to rent.
I know this because I moved into my rooming house and there was graffiti on a lot of the walls in my room and the common kitchen area from a drug dealer who had been living there. The landlord wasn't really a victim of the bad tenant because she had let him stay there unchallenged for a long time and he intimidated the other tenants and was really racist and had anger management, but as soon as she finally said she might call the police he was gone within a day or two. Someone who used to live here was visiting and said that the landlord used to be a small time dealer of some sort 15 years ago
