 The  door sets are more than - all ours are fd 30  that but you need to think about the  ease of fitting . I think we wil do our  own but if we needed to hang the doors  we would need to pay someone to do it 

 

Thanks. We will talk to our joiner. 
 

Would love to see your blog if you don’t mind?

You will struggle at that level for a decent door in that size. You’ll also need custom linings as they are non standard - budget £60-80 for a joiner made lining to fit those gaps. 

Howdens or magnet don't sell metric linings? I can't believe that sure I've bought them before.

Howdens do a 940 but that is for an 898 door. Height is 2030 so would be 2010 door.

Trenched for 926 and I would assume 826 on reverse side. Otherwise you would allow chippie extra .5hr to trench. Realistically 10 mins. They also do in fd30

I think op will be struggling at 200 per set depending on finish on doors. Magnet doing the oak belieze atm for 50 quid unfinished in imperial. If you allow 100 for door and lining, 20 for ironmongery that's leaves you with 80 for labour to fit, buy stain/oil then apply

Yep that’s just 3 bits of timber so cost wise they may as well just buy 125x35 and make them up on site as it’s got to be cheaper. Do Magnet do anything that size ...??
 

Haven’t seen them double trenched on the standard ones - just seem to be singles in Howdens as they sell them in standard sizes. Wasn’t impressed with the quality of the last ones so tend to use ones from MKM.

Been using good ones on site I'm on atm they are trenched but for a shouldered half lap so cutting the ears of flush and lining still keeps it's integrity

 we have ordered but not yet got delivered doors form TEV doors. They are the Porta doors. Lots of modern styles and mainly door sets . Incredibly helpful team and  make good suggestions for what you could

do to get more standard sizes https://www.tevdoors.co.uk/

 

Thanks for your recommendation for TEV Doors Red Kite. They asked me who recommended so I told them someone from this forum. Does your first name start with J?! I honestly didn't know to tell them!

 

Anyhow, we really like their doors and hope they will be able to help us. We're going to make the near 8 hour round trip to go and see them soon. I'll keep you posted!

Tev did ask us if we had recommended  someone - not sure if J was me - Juliana or my son Jo . We hope the doors are ok  and will

update when they arrive. Great people to work with so far

I really like the concept of TEV doors but do you know how much they come to...roughly?

Sorry @NickK I missed your post previously. 
 

If you look at TEV Doors’ prices they appear higher than a door from Howdens et al, but when we compared the quote from our builder for supply, fit, door linings, frames, skirtings etc they work out considerably cheaper.
