    how did you install the hinge, is it screwed to the edge of the door and the edge of the jamb or attached the face. either way you will see it, just the first way you will see less
    fire up the saw and make some dust

    I hinged it inside jam and backside of door panel, have 3/4" gap allowing for door to open outward. I tried to upload a picture. Will not accept

    i build a ton of hatches similar but i install the hinge to the edge of the door and to the face of the jamb, also the door gets cut about 3/16" smaller than the jamb opening not 3/4".

    if the crawlspace is supposed to be attic space you cant get a good seal if there is weather stripping installed
