Converting Window to a door Help!


Hello all. I am building a balcony off the master bed room. I have plans that have been approved by the building dept. I would like to convert an existing window into a door to the outside balcony. The building dept says I need a permit only if I have to make the width larger because it involves a new header ect. So I am wondering id there are doors that are narrow enough to fit?the width of the rough opening is about 29 inches.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Keith

Doors are readily available to 24" widths. An exterior door that small might be a challenge. Call local millwork suppliers and I bet you'll find something.
