It really depends on who will do the job. If done by a professional, it would like like the door was never there. If it’s done by amateur or DIY, it’s very possible that it’ll look like there used to be a door there. I’ve done quite a few patches around the house, but it has always been a hit or miss with me regarding matching pre-existing texture. It might look easy, but it really isn’t.June 3, 2014 at 3:57 PM #774711HobieParticipant
Before you start slinging a saw, you should determine if that wall is a sheer wall, structural support, electric, or plumbing inside, etc. What AN said +1June 3, 2014 at 4:02 PM #774712spdrunParticipant
You can always put a decorative panel or bookshelves there if it bothers you in future. Or just leave the door and lock it if it needs to be locked.June 3, 2014 at 4:19 PM #774713FlyerInHiGuest
Nothing to it. Just a few hundred for finishing by a pro.
I have good drywall contractor if you want.
Spd, you’re such a New Yorker used to improvising.

Thanks guys. At this point, I really don’t want tenant to do anything because it is a 1/2 bath with very tight space. It is weird to open a door and another door is immediately upon your face. Just said no to tenant and hope they will give up this idea. I don’t think it is a structural, support wall because at one time we are looking into knocking down the whole wall and expand the 1/2 bath. Some contractors came in to give us quotes.
Speaking of professionals, not all are equal. We once had a leak in the roof, a handyman came and patched it up. It was a lousy job. He came back to fix it which made it even worse.
FlyerinHi, I would appreciate to have your drywall contractor’s name so I can be prepared. Thanks.
