I would settle for a measure to reduce the size of the opening to accomodate the standard doors.
I understand and read your concern about the brick not matching and all, but there are other alternatives to reduce the height by 6 inches.
You need some contractors to come out and present them to you.
I would not pay that custom door price either and its rediculous. Restore doors are hard and expensive too.
