    I spent the whole day yesterday building an airing cupboard, I bought 2 identical doors, one hinged to the left one to the right, built the studwork, fitted the plasterboard, then cut the horns off the door frame and fitted in position, made and fitted shelves, all went well, cleared away ready to go home, then at a last look,something looked wrong, checked the levels, all seemed good, after a lot of head scratching, measuring and re-measuring,I noticed that in the manufacture of the doors one lock had been fitted 30mm high up the door than the other, as they are pine doors to be varnished, moving the lock is not an option,so it is back to try and buy another door with hopefully the locks in the same position,that means another morning wasted as well as another 80 euros,

    I have 4 of the plank type brico doors and all the handles are different heights. I’d never noticed.

    I assumed (obviously wrongly)that they would have been made in the same factory, the labels and bar codes were the same so I thought they would have been made on the same jig, It just gets worse, been to buy another, but they are out of stock, no idea when they will be in stock.
