Previous homeowner added this door in the upstairs hallway, to create a master suite when they combined two bedrooms. The framers did not remove the drywall; they just nailed over it.

This was a door into a bathroom. It was apparently taken out and the wall closed off  in order to create a master bath. The irony is, Steven and Jacquela are putting a door at almost exactly this location, to create a laundry/utility room -- we are again returning the house to its original footprint.
