Question

Help with interior door framing!!


I am currently remodeling our closet. I am changing the entrance into the closet, and moving it adjacent to an exterior wall. I would like to frame the new entrance so that there is no trimmer stud showing along the adjacent exterior wall (no stub wall) so that I will have a smooth continuous wall that extends through the door opening. Also I am doing this on the 1st floor of a two story house. How can I do this? I"m not sure if the new door way is in a load bearing wall or not. Any help is greatly appreciated.


Thanks!

Besides the fact that it will look awful, there is no way around needing to put "stops" on the walls. Then there goes the straight-through effect you were looking for.

So this is a ............ swinging door, as in restaurant? With no latch or stop as Willie said? Again, why?

Just run the header 1-1/2" into the exterior to bear on a trimmer, with either a king stud behind it or full height studs on either side of the trimmer and the header run all the way to exterior sheathing. Nail it well. Be safe, G

There will not be a physical door, only a short hallway through the front of the closet.
