Basement Finishing.


How do I frame around an exterior basement french door to finish the basement walls when the existing door is recessed about 2" already in the poured concrete walls?

Sounds like maybe a jamb extension situation

One-by pine framing extending from drywall to existing door frame then install casing around the pine as per usual.
