you are a little vague though I make out that you are having problems rescaling. Simply make the door bigger or smaller in all dimensions at once by grabbing the middle of the scale tool, alternatively you can grab the others to change the scale on the x,y or z.

Also if you look in the channels box, highlight scale, then go over your image and keep clicked the middle mouse buttonm and scrub left and right to change the size attribute. Hope this helps.

That's not what he's asking, I believe what you want to do is 'Shift+Click' All objects that you want to move simultaneously then go Edit > Group then scale or rotate etc and they will all edit with respect to each other.
