Custom interior door


I am remodeling my basement and need a cheapo door that is 70 inches high and 32 inches wide.

I can't seem to find anything on the internet about where I might go to custom order something like that (other than Lowes) . If anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate it.

Interestingly, I have 2 of the exact doors I want already in my basement, with item numbers on them and everything. For some reason, a search on them digs up nothing.

pre-hung would be ideal and any advice is welcome!

You could just get a door with the jamb and cut the bottom part off. Don’t get the 6 panel door. If you use a hollow core door you will need to fill the void on the bottom which is easy if you have a table saw. All I do is use wood glue and clamps. Dry fit the jamb and then cut the door or ” less. Are you going to have threshold. The only thing I can see is it is possible you might have to move the bottom hinge.

Go to a local lumberyard with the size you need and a picture of the doors you have.

Ron and Robin,

Thanks for the advice. I will try the lumberyard first and if all else fails I guess I will have to customize.

thanks again.
