rough opening for 30x80 door?


Just wanted to make sure I get the frame built out correctly.

I'm adding a 30x80 door I read that you're supposed to add 2" to the width and 2.5 for the height but found a manual on homedepot sit that says it my rough opening should be 32.5 wide and 82 tall. I know it's only half an inch but since I'm building it out wanted to make sure it's done right from the get go to reduce the amount of shimming at the end.

it is smaller than 32 x 82 but that is for making sure you have room to square and shim where needed for a nice install...
