    Hi,

    Looking for some advice, fitted a few doors in my time but never had this issue before.

    After cutting my door to size and putting it up to see how it fits there is a gap at the door stop (see picture). I dont remember the old door being any thinker than the new. If I move the hinge back this starts to prevent the door form opening properly.

    Is my only option to add to the door stop, or start to cut into the skirting to make room for the hinge if I move it closer to the stop?

    Any help appreciated, probably an easy question to a joiner but the last doors I have done just went in no problem.

    Thanks

    What I think I am trying to is fit a 35mm door into a 40mm frame. The stop I dont think can be moved.
