Including exterior doors.
(I am massively bored today).
This is up there with WHAT CAN YOU SEE FROM YOUR WINDOW? :D
SOLID GOLD FUTURE CLASSIC.
and was entitled 'what geographical direction does your bedroom window face?"
The doors to the close are external (i.e. exposed to the outdoors).
I'm confused already.
...And kitchen units?
I envisaged we would only count doors that acted as entrances exits to rooms.
But if you would like to include all your totals, I'd certainly be interested in seeing it.
wardrobe doors: 2, i think. it's two sliding panels on one wardrobe.
shower doors: 1
normal kitchen unit doors: 3 normal, 1 narrow (almost narrow enough to become a flap, tbh), 3 high level, 1 on the front of the boiler enclosure, 1 cosmetic one on the front of the washing machine, 1 as part of the actual machine.
SVP access: 3
2 toy cars: 4
...makes 28. So far.
Forgot the oven.
Forgot the cupboard door.
Are they flaps or doors? Or removable panels?
I think a hinge may be a defining feature, although we certainly have to accept sliding doors.
(When is a door not a door? When it's ajar).
Definitely not deserving of door status.
An on that note, downgrading, Pluto style, the three SVP access 'doors' to the status of 'hatches'.
But I forgot about the small wall hung cubby hole cupboard thing. So... 28.
And microwave, if you have ne.
So you would count the front door of your flat itself as an internal door, but no doors in the rest of the building, including those leading onto the street.
Though if you have a door that leads from your flat into a garden or balcony area, obviously include those.
are we counting cupboards and wadrobes?
Maybe leaving out cupboards etc is for the best.
1 - Front door
2 - Downstairs loo
3 - Living room door
4 & 5 - Double doors between living room and dining room
6 - kitchen door
7 - Airing cupboard door
8 - cupboard under the stairs door
9 - upstairs bathroom door
10 - My bedroom door
11 - My parents bedroom door
12 - My brothers bedroom door
13 - loft door on the ceiling
and my parents have like 8 wadrobe door along one wall.
Surely one of the worst threads ever?
and as we are excluding the door into the building for flats (see above) I have only;
-Door to flat
I do not have a garden. There are no doors to the kitchen or lounge.
Fair enough, your explanation makes sense.
there are 22 doors other than the 3 already mentioned. Although 2 of these are more like hatches into loftspaces. Do they count? No airing cupboard.
3 of them fire doors. 2 of which I keep open with a stopper. Sticking it to the (fire)man!
3/7 of mine are on the whole, open all the time.
6/8 spend more time open* than properly closed.
*or noticeably** ajar. We're lumping ajar doors in with the wide open doors, right.
**as opposed to closed, but /not quite/ closed to.
Best thread for weeks.
one of my housemates insist ALL DOORS ARE CLOSED AT ALL TIMES
the rest of us are less weird about it
My front door is always closed except when I leave and come in.
Kitchen door is never closed, except if my washing machine is on a spin dry and it's really loud.
Airing cupboard is pretty much always closed except when getting a shirt out/hanging them up.
Living room door is very rarely closed but often ajar.
Spare room door is always open. I wander in and out to get laundry which hangs in there.
Bedroom door is also always open, I hang a dressing gown on it so it's pushed closed but never actually closed.
Bathroom door is usually open except when I'm in there, and even then not always because I live at own.
This is just eating up the hours.
or the one that leads into the flat as well?
either way, once you've gone through the door that leads into the flat:
the door to flatmate A's room
the door to flamate B's room
the door to the spare room
the door between the spare room and the kitchen (which we don't use, but it's there)
the door to my room
the door between my room and flatmate B's room (not in use)
the door between my room and the kitchen (not in use)
the door from the kitchen into the hallwaything that leads to the bathroom and the back room
the door to the bathroom
the door to the back room (the back room is where we keep the washing machine and boxes of stuff that we don't really use etc)
the door to another tiny room within the back room
the door from the back room to the fire escape exit thing (does this count as exterior?)
so that's 12?
(I wouldn't include the door which leads into the building, no).
(Including back door from garage, which is built into first floor of the house)
but it is most definitely a door.
8 if you include the shared front door. 9 if you include the shed. Good Lord.
these threads are his forte
8 if you include the trapdoor to the loft, not that I've ever been up there.
It has door in it, so I guess so.
came home from the pub one night at that special level of drunkness where you think any idea you come up with is genius. He went onto eBay and looked at job lots of things he could sell on at a profit. He stumbled on the motherlode: the better part of a hundred interior doors with no bids, a 99p starting bid, no reserve and half an hour to go!
He checked his emails two days later and discovered he'd won the auction he'd forgotten about.
Rather than ignoring it, he paid his 99p and arranged and paid for an articulated lorry to get them to his flat (not cheap!).
For months, his room and most of the rest of his flat was nothing but doors. I can't remember how many there were, but there were dozens and dozens and dozens. He managed to flog a few of them but didn't get nearly cover the cost of the lorry hire. Towards the end of that year, he was forcing people to take doors with them whenever they visited.
(Our flat has five. Wow.)
17 if you count doors to cupboards that go to the floor. Two cupboards have double-doors so that's upped the numbers a little.
SINGLE DOORS LIKE THE REST OF US NOT GOOD ENOUGH
door to shed: 1
garden gates: 2
external doors to house: 2
internal doors (for rooms): 5
loft hatches: 2
doors to water tank / boiler: 2
under stairs cupboard door: 1
kitchen cupboard doors: 6
doors to kitchen appliances: 6
wardrobe doors: 6 (4 are sliding)
jim morrison: 0
oooooh la di fucking da YOUR LORDSHIP.
our house is over three floors and there's eaves storage on the middle and top floor. the one on the top floor is pretty tiny, though.
that changes EVERYTHING.
(it changes nothing - i have no gates)
and two doors on the fridge and a door on the oven, plus other cupboards and our garden gate door, that's 34 doors total.
what about a picture book with little doors you open to see where Spot is hiding?
What about if its december, do we count advent calendar doors.
There's a door on the back of our clock.
Are windows that open doors?
then at least 100
Including Ray Manzarek, who is living under the stairs.
should rally read the thread first
At least one of those is surplus to requirements.
shall i take a key, or is there a spare hidden somewhere?
15 if you count loft hatch and garage door
8 doors, including the pantry door, because it's a solid wooden door like all bedroom and bathroom doors.
I just realized I misread the OP yesterday. I thought it said *excluding* exterior doors.
New answer: 12 if we count the double sliding door out to the back yard as 2 separate doors.
The front door, and the bathroom door. I do live alone in a flat though, and don't really need any more. The only problem is having to shut the cat in the bathroom at night if he's biting my feet.
there have to be at least two doors, or a door and a staircase, between a kitchen and a toilet.
Think you're right in that it was for a while. But not anymore. In Scotland, anyway. Dunno 'bout the latest in E&W.
I wouldn't recommend it though.
Where looking at the average house or flat, have more or less zero planning laws in this respect, and my bathroom is straight off a kitchen, as are a few others I've been in. God knows when this place was built, but definitely not in the last 50 years.
This thread has been a power of good.
three panelled bi-folding door to garden (ooh get me)

when someone says a car has five doors is the fifth door the boot or the little petrol flap thing?
Boot, if it's a hatchback. 3 door hatchback, 4 door saloon, 5 door hatchback.
However the rules of this new cricket malarkey work, I reckon I should be winning.
it's a great thread.
ok then seeya
6 + my lace-embossed diary (the window to my soul)
b) More like the window to your ar-soul (arsehole), AMIRITE?
rather than windows in the space of the same sentence
but at the same I sort of want to abide by poptimusgrime's thread-starting ban for my own good.
Living room door
Music room door
My bedroom door
Mum's bedroom door
Box room door
people are counting cupboard doors? Really guys ...
-flat entry, bathroom, kitchen: 3
-closets: 4 doors in total in 2 closets
-fridge door: 1
-Oven: 1 (if, as it seems "door" is the preferred term)
-kitchen cupboards: 4
should I put these on a spreadsheet, analysing usage and possible wear-and-tear of hinges over an 18-month trial period?
1 flat door
1 living room
3 bedroom doors
1 back door
2 doors to storage rooms
including two doors to cupboards which are the type as doors between rooms
What's your Dad called
my Dad is called Tony as well. I've yet to count all his doors.
Excluding silly doors attached to ovens, fridges, kitchen cupboards etc etc.
2 x 2 french doors to garden
1 front room
1 dining room
2 sliding doors separating those rooms (tis a period feature house no less)
1 kitchen door to garden
(2 shed doors to make it a round 20?)
I love my doors.
Bedroom door x 4
Little study door
6 interiors 3 or 5 exteriors (depending how you count them)
including only proper doors.
FFS sake, people.
Bathroom, bedroom, living room, kitchen, all off a central hall. Nice and neat.
because like, it's 2 bits of wood, so two doors, but it's only one entrance from one room into another. do you see?
if so 8
front door, hall, lounge to kitchen, lounge to garage, bedroom 1, bedroom 2, bathroom, garage door
no door between kitchen & lounge
Also, only just read chanticleer's anecdote upthread. Genuine tears.
Kitchen to dining room door
Dining room to hall door
Lounge to hall door
Bedroom doors x3
Eaves cupboard door (full height)
So if by "exterior doors" you mean the ones on the ground floor (2, fyi), then my flat has 5 doors: bathroom, 2 bedrooms, balcony door and the one between the actual flat and the hallway. If both the hallway door AND the balcony door are excluded then 3 (see above).
