How to install wood screen door and exterior steel door


We are building a new porch with 2 x 4 wall construction. We have selected a steel exterior door 32 x80 left hand prehung. Subsequently we found a wooden screen door 32 x 80. How do I put both doors in the same jamb, or adjust the jamb and sill to accommodate the steel door and the screen door?
Thanks

Anyone have some insight on this?

How to install wood screen door and exterior steel door


Most steel doors have an accessory sill extender that gets slid onto the standard sill BEFORE the door gets installed.
As for the wood storm, that would be installed on the exterior brick mold the steel door comes with. Since wood storms don't usually come with a frame, you might need to install a stop molding around the perimeter to seal the door when it closes as well asa bottom sweep.
