So first question is were going to be increaseing door width from 32ish" doors to 36" for handicap access. Are there any guides or methods to frame around for the new door (there prehung) but as the opening needs to be wider what would be the correct method of doing so. The doors being increased are not located on load bearing walls.
Second topic is windows.... Were trying to shop for new window's as the house we bought is pretty old and they have half of it with vinyl siding and new winodws and the other half not..... Needless to say were going to replace the rest of the windows and finish the vinyl siding at some point. But were shopping for new windows and having a hard time making a decision....
The following are all the window dimensions.
25 3/4 x 53 1/2
24 1/4 x 44 1/2
24 1/4 x 45 1/4
25 1/4 x 57
25 3/4 x 56 3/4 (2)
24 1/2 x 57 (2)
38 3/4 x 39
37 3/4 x 40
39 x 40 1/2
39 x 40 3/4
25 1/4 x 54 (2)
25 1/2 x 53 1/2 (2)
Naturally to get these windows to size would require special orders and most likely a huge increase in cost. So the thinking is to get windows just slightly larger if possible then what is required since I would assume it would be easier to increase the window space as opposed to a decrease correct? If we can't get both of the width to height close enough and have to fill in some space on either side what is the best way of doing so?
Pretty new to everything so were going to learn as we go (really what other way is there) and because of budget we can't really hire someone
So any help is appreciated! Thanks.
