In reply to Door opening by J.R. Moore on March 12th, 2003 12:08 PM [Go to top of thread]

Hey JR,

Given you are going to make the frames from 1x stock, you'll need to make the door opening at least 34". The height of the door opening should be 81 1/2" off the floor. You'd put the shoulder on the bottom plate, and the cripples/jacks/shoulders would be 80", then you'd head those off.

Remember one thing, though, when in doubt, you can always make your openings bigger and use a filler to make them smaller. If you make them too small, there is no return.
