Revit Tip - Nested Families and Scheduling

Great tip over at Revit Clinic...  I actually noticed this a while back when using schedules to count plumbing fixtures... Not exactly the same thing, but very similar....

Starting a new series today, with some quick one question Revit quizzes.  If you have any feedback please do not hesitate to leave some comments below…
The scenario is as follows:
You have a custom door family, containing 2 nested shared door families.  You use the host family to lay out the nested families.  When you schedule the doors, you notice each instance of the custom family is being counted as 3 doors versus the expected 2.  Why is this?
