Floating floor or French Doors first?
I'm going to get a replacement French-style swing door for my existing glass slider, as well as put in a floating floor over cement slab. Exterior is stucco, wall thickness seems "normal" on this 1964 house. I've done a bit of DIY (mud, tile, light elec.), but for the most part, I'm a computer guy. :0
1. Which do I do first? The existing door's frame doesn't extend beyond the thickness of the wall, so I'm guessing I could probably do the floor first, but I don't want to end up with a gap or some other issue if I'm wrong. If I do the door first, I don't want to end up with a step-down from the flooring to the threshold of the door--or do they allow for that already?
2. We're planning on doing the flooring ourselves, and had hoped to do the door ourselves, but the prehung interior I just put in was horribly more difficult than I imagined it could be, and has got me thinking I might be better to stick with what I'm good at and let a pro do the exterior door. Am I correct in thinking that if the prehung was this hard to get right, I should avoid the exterior install? Or does it get easier after a door or two?
Thanks for the input,
