Question

Exterior Door Size to Order


Hey Everyone,

so i bought my house last year and in the basment, there is a wood door heading out to the back yard. well, this door was not intended to be permenant.its so old you can see righ through the wood into the back yard.

I want to replace it but have no idea what height to order. they have cut this door to accomedate for the drop ceiling.

From the Threshold to the drop ceiling(also the top edge of the door) it measures 71".

the width is a common 32", but the height baffles me becasue i would like to order a custom prehung door


any ideas

Thanks

do you have enough wall height for a standard door? if so, can you reconfigure the dropped ceiling to allow for a taller door?

the drop ceiling is technically covering some pipe so I wouldn't be able to reconfigure and I don't believe there's enough wall height for a full size Door. the original owner had put in a full size door and just chopped off the top. There door there now is still visible but it doesn't move because it's fixed in place. They cut it millimeters from the drop ceiling; so when it opens fully it scraps it.
