If your house is anything like mine then you have had to install a new door more than a time or two. This process can be very tedious and time consuming if you don't take the right steps. With this Instructable I will provide you with a step by step process to make installing your new door a little easier. 

Step 1: Step 1: Materials

To begin this project you will need the right materials. These materials are as follows. 
Standard wood door cutout (80" x 32")
Knob latch and hinge set (screws needed come with pack) 
Doorknob drill attachment
Sandpaper or an electric sander

If you don't have these materials around the house go to your local hardware store and pick them up. All of these items are fairly easy to recognize and find the one people have the hardest time with is the doorknob drill attachment which is pictured above. 
good instructable, but if i may add, that when hanging a door use a plum line to make sure its level, because nothing sucks more then moving a hinge 1/8 inch, to get the door level :P
