Adding Closets
 
We are adding closets to two rooms that we have, before it was almost like a build it cabin but we tore that out and looking to put in some small walls then add a door.

My question is though, the floor is not exactly level, we cut out trimmers for the header and the header is not level, its about 3/8" off. We can cut one trimmer 3/8" longer, but then we may notice a gap at the floor of the door that tapers.

That being said should the header be completely level or parallel to the floor?

Framing should be plumb and square. The door should be plumb and square. You can modify the door bottom and cut it parallel to the floor or to a saddle, that is used to give the door proper clearance.
