New help finding door


Odd application, but need help finding a door with the following criteria

Easy part:
Double door - 60 inches wide ideal
Outswing
Exterior application, but doesn't need to be insulated
Need a lock, deadbolt is preferred
6 panel is preferred design
Would like prehung so I don't have to mess with it
I get snow/rain here so need it to seal reasonably well

Tough part:
Height is a huge issue, would like a door no taller than 6 feet.

The shorter I have found so far is 76 1/2" (79" RO) for a whopping $700

sounds like a custom-built door set.
find a capable carpenter/cabinet guy in your area.

A double cut down door for $700 is not whopping. Many lumberyards have on site door shops that can easily do a 79" door opening. Steel doors will be the least expensive, but fiberglass is better from a maintenance standpoint.
