framing a 30" cased opening with no door (a walkthru)


I need to extend my closet area and decided to use the sewing room next door to my original closet. I have made the 30" opening but am uncertain as to the amount of framing necessary i.e. header and side supports. There is only attic space above this wall area. Can anyone help me with this project?

Maybe post a picture of what you have done so far. This will insure you get a much better result with others answers.

I agree with the picture ... if you know how to do that. Generally, if it isn't a bearing wall, you shouldn't have much of an issue.
If you can't add a picture, could you describe the proposed project in a little more detail?

Thank you both for your replies. I will get with my husband and ask about taking a picture so that I can post it.

Pictures always help...unless they're blurry phone pics (you know who you are)

Here are a couple of illustrations from this thread How do I Lower Closet Header? , awhile back:

Might help you "picture" what you need to do.





This was an instance where the op wanted to put in a shorter door than was there originally.
