Well I decided to renovate the addition to my house which my laundry machines sit in once i started I became aware that the people who built this addition had no idea what square is or how to use a level. I removed the old exterior door which left me with a completely crooked opening to installed a new pre hung exterior door I did manage to pull that together .I then went out side and around the base of the cut the old sheathing which was rotten due to the lack of knowledge when being built. So i took all the correct steps the re due the sheathing. Then all the steps to re apply the stucco for the siding which was a challenge but I did successfully do that. But I have ran into this problem see there is a 2.5 inch gap between the molding on the door frame and the stucco. This gap is to little for me to install the sheathing let alone the paper the wire and the stucco, i was thinking about cutting the stucco off a big enough area around this gap to allow me to add the sheathing and so on to be able to stucco it. Seeing as this gap is only 2.5 inches I was wondering if there is any other ways I could possibly do this so that I end up without that gap and get the weathering protection i need in that area. This has been the most problem sum renovations I have ever ran into and I could use any sorta feed back on this. Anything is better than nothing and it also might save me some work I hope, thanks

You could frame the door with wood trim, or you will have to remove the stucco back far enough to repair it.
