I have a fairly narrow hallway (4'-6") with doors on one side only, and everytime I add a wall base to the hall, the doors clip both the base on their side of the hallway, and on the opposite side of the hallway as well.  Right now, it seems like the doors simply clip/cut anything 5'-0" infront of or behind them.

I know I can eliminate this problem by doing a separate wall base per wall, but that just takes more time than doing a single wall base per room.  Is there a method to reduce the "clipping depth" in the door?  It's not a door parameter issue, as I made the door family and it's parameters myself, but for reference, I've attached the door family. I apologize if I'm not using the correct terminology.

Doors never work this way unless somehow the two corridor walls are joined.

 

I don't have Revit here to check out your door family but you say you made it.   Did you use the door template and the built in opening cut or did you put a void in the family?  That should not matter either but I'm at a loss.   There is something else that you haven't told us.

The door was made using the default door family template, and built in "Opening Cut" tool, not a void.  As you said, this shouldn't be an issue, regardless.  It behaves the same way with a system door family as well.

Not sure what else I can add.  As I mentioned, I typically do one sweep per room, and perhaps that's the problem.  It only occurs when there is a sweep within 5'-0" of the front or back of the door.  I've attached an image of a quick example.  It shows a 4'-6" hallway and you can see that the wall base is clipped opposite each door.  Perhaps it's simply a quirk in Revit that I'm only now encountering because of the narrow hallway and I need to do a new sweep for each wall instead of one per room to avoid the problem.
