I have a 8-0 x 8-0 OX sliding glass door that I am interested in replacing. I have a vision (see photo) of what I want, but was looking for some feedback and suggestions as far as the framing. I want to use a 6-0 x 6-8 french door with separate picture windows on both sides and the top. What is the best method of framing the opening to accommodate the door and windows?
I have installed entry doors before, but have never framed an opening smaller to accommodate a different size door or added windows. The home is stucco construction, built in 97.
Suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Looking for the appearance of sidelights and a transom, but using separate picture windows to keep the costs low.
