Door Swing and R.O. Question

You say to measure the rough opening, should the trim be pulled back to get the actual measurement, or just guesstimate

Door Swing and R.O. Question

yes, you do need to remove the casing to see the r.o. theres no telling what the carprenter did when they framed it.. i dont know how many times ive gone it to trim a house where the plan called for a 30" door and the framers made the OPENING 30" or they have the r.o correct but the studs arent plumb so the door wont go in the opening and be hung properly so it requred removing the jack studs and putting back in on one side
