I'll use the first person plural to protect the guilty parties involved.

Saturday we broke the downstairs bathroom door--punched a neat little hole halfway through. Instead of leaving it there in the interim of its replacement, we decided it would be fun to punch a bigger hole all the way through it. Now it's in our garage, a sorry excuse for door-heaven. We measured for the new door. We rented a truck from Home Depot and purchased a new slab door to replace it. Now we discover that the measurements were a bit off-- 3 inches too wide. Door-heaven just got a little smaller.

There's more out there somewhere, but these come to mind the most...

I like the door heaven idea.

Do all hosuehold things have a heaven I wonder?

Three inches is not a little bit off when measuring doors. Hope the Depot will take it back...

And I wouldn't want to visit litterbox heaven.

I agree with BP. 3 inches is a lot. And litterbox heaven would most likely be hell.

OUCH! I found it always worked best to rip the door out and get the Rough Stud Opening measurement. Hard to go wrong with that
