    We realised you weren`t a trained chippie when you said depth, but we had to clarify the height/width thing before giving advice. Bandymandy then comes on with the moronic statement, it doesn`t matter. This guy has a bee in his bonnet about ANY tradesman, he seems to think that using correct terminology, tried and trusted methods is for the birds. I think in his "mind" he is using intellectual argument to shoot down professional people. In this instance your post was answered before he came on with his bullpoo. As you can see, he still will not let it sink in, the guy is a fool.

    If i was measuring a wall, i would stick the tape up to the celing and measure down to the floor.....
    Is this the "depth" of the wall?...........is it shyyte, it's the height!!!!!!!
    Why the hell would i get a ladder out just so i measure upwards!!!!!!!!!!

    I've no problem with using depth or thickness in relationship to a door.

    No there is a bug on the forum and it indicates that there a new post on a topic when there isn't and the only way to get rid of it is to post on said topic. Perhaps Handy has it bad and thats why he won't let go even when he's in the wrong. :)

    Not getting at you Audi, but the situation is measuring down from the ceiling only 1m(not to the floor). Would you still say 'height' ?


    'The height from the ceiling down' ?

    It's my point exactly, that others can't seem to read between the lines on anything other that 'wot they bin taught'.

    just a bit tounge in cheek scotty

    do you really refer to the depth or do you refer to the thickness

    off topic but on topic
    depth in my opinion is always the distance away from you if you are inside or looking inside a room/box

    for an outside measurement length is the longest dimension width is the middle dimension and depth is the smaller dimension

    i may be wrong as i have not really thought it through but i can always do a bandymandy and grasp at straws if i am ;)

    Like you Wudster, (see we`re pals now)length-width-thickness. :)

    Problem is wuddy, there is always more than one way to skin a cat, and always will be.

    To me, depth goes down, or inward (always).

    Height goes bottom to top (always).


    A hole in the ground can be 3ft deep, but 3ft high, only if you are in it.



    And if anyone needs to be got at, it's chippie. It was he who took the mick out of the engineer for not knowing the terrminology. It was not I.


    I'm just chuffed to know that chippie didn't have a clue what the OP was on about cos it 'wasn't wot he woz taught, like'.


    :^O:^O:^O:^O

    i think chippie was right in asking the op

    the op asked about a door width and everyone bar you would assume he means the measurement left to right regardless of how deep your hole is and what your sticking in it

    then when questioned the op said "lets call it height then" as if everyone was wrong and he was humouring them

    Handy, you are the only person that mentioned the wall whether it was measuring it up, down, sideways or backwards.
    The OP talked about an airing cupboard door's depth being 1M, I realised he didn't mean depth as in thickness because that would be stupid, so what is more likely a door a metre wide or a door a metre high.
    When asked what he really meant the OP came in with a stroppy answer and as he was an engineer and should have known better he got a stroppy reply.
    Then you piped up...........

    Wuddy. Is that a description of your brain (woody)?



    OP NEVER asked about width, he said depth. As chippie said, there is NO depth measurement for a door, depth cannot mean width, so only leaves one option really. Quite reasonable to state the measurement from ceiling down.
    Obvious to most!

    (Thinking further, if he HAD said height, it might have confused you more, imagining the measurement was from the floor up, but it wasn't)
