Installing a prehung door on Metal studs


In my condo, the door to the pantry was removed by the previous owners and I would like to put a door back. The space to put the door is 36 x 81, I found on the internal tons and tons of material on installing prehung doors, however i could not find how to install them on Metal Studs.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thx
Tiago

Screw a wood stud to the vertical metal studs and install a 30" prehung door.

There are plenty of prehung doors made for just that type of installation. Look for "Timely Doors" and see if they are still around, that's the only name I can think of off-hand.

Or do as Ron suggests, this isn't a big deal.

Look at your other doors and see how they are installed and what brand they are.
