Door Casing Install....
I have seen this done a few ways and was wondering what you guys though was best.
THe way I normally go about it is to measure the side's and add 1/4" for reveal. Measure accross the top and add 1/2" for reveal. I find the center of the top and tack that piece in place. Hang the sides and nail it all in.
I have seen people actually assemble it on the floor then lift it into place already together.
What is the best was for a DIYer to do this?
Double check jambs for level & plumb. Now is the time to fix it.
pencil scribe your architectural revel on the jambs. I like 3/16th but, match what you have in the house.
Measure to short point ( I pencil mark my tape)/ cut your 45's on the casing
Install casing following your scribe marks. ( a little practice and the scribe is easy)
Less chance for a silly math error. ( Have you seen the price of casing these days?)
three measures and no math.
