Simply Build It

Probably yes. Have you got the paperwork for the door closer? It will detail how to ease off the piston that controls the door opening and closing. Normally there are two screws: 1 for the door swing and the other for the door closer (last 6 inches or so). I would imagine the door swing is set to a very high resistance - wind it down a bit.
