In our utility room we replaced our water heater which is in the corner near the door. The newer tank is larger than the previous one and therefore we can't shut the utility room door mainly due to the oversized drip pan under the tank. My solution is to move the door so it opens out of the room rather than opening in like it does now. Any suggestions on how to trim/cut the door facing so the hinge plates are flush with the facing? Same question for the latch too. BTW, I am not good at routing if that is my only option. Thanks for any help.
