Have to make a Dutch door going down to the cellar,

The door opens towards you but I want the top half too swing in!!!

Anyone ever do this?

I imagine I'll have make the doors not line up anymore but hoping to keep them flush

I can reverse the stops that's easy enough just not sure if I cut the width of the top I could put hinges inline? With the bottom half?

Any ideas??

Gary Katz has a door hanging book with a chapter on those type of doors. That may help

Wouldn't be too bad... make the top half swing both ways with 2-way hinges (no stop). Leave the bottom standard, and use a slide bolt to lock them together.
