Ok, So I'm constructing the door to my coop and so far all is well except my door is sagging down (the side opposite the hinges). Is there a way I can pull it up or brace the door to stop the sag? I've already tried moving the hinge and that hasn't stopped the sag. I was thinking a beam from the bottom of the door to the side that has the hinges so it kind of holds it? (Screwed on a 45 degree angle or something?)
Cool, That's what I'm thinking, The frame of the door is a rectangle with a support beam across the middle, If I make the diagonal brace and screw it from the middle support to the edge where the hinges are that should then hold it?
I would screw into the bottom cross piece near the hinge and then lift the swinging edge to square it up (maybe even a hair past) and then screw into your top and middle cross pieces- like a Z. It will held stop the sagging.
Hubby saved the day lol. Came home from work and fixed it for me :) The door now doesn't sag but I'm going to add another brace to ensure it won't happen in the future :)
