Hi. I am new to this forum so wondering if ye could help me please.
I am doing a self build… masonry build.
We would like no architrave on the doors.
All walls are block on edge. I will have a mortar finish on the hall side of all doors and in the inside of each room , I will have have mortar plus skim…
How can I best achieve the no architrave look will what I have please.
All I can think of is… fix door linings .. mortar to door linings … then skim over the joint of the liner and the mortar for the inside but on the hallside I dunno…
Thanks

just use a stop bead or a shadow gap bead, i've done a couple of these over the years and always think traditional is best.

Use 75mm door linings set in the middle of the block work. Angle bead around either side of the opening.

use shadow gap beads. weve done many of these.. google
shadow gap beads images and you will see plenty of examples.

i would pay extra for powder coated coloured though

You can also buy a door lining that is to be ‘plastered in’ its a metal frame with perforated edge around, board or float upto then skim over the edge for a seamless finish. We did some on some alteration work for a customer and they came out nice

Well that looks like the solution for the op. Apart from the fact they won't want to pay for them.
