Installing door jamb for sliding surface mount door
I plan to replace a hinged door and frame with surface mount sliding door hardware. The current hinged door was added about 3 years ago as a temp conversion to a bedroom. The opening was not sized for a door so it is about 84" in height and accommodated a 36" door frame.
I need to install the door jamb for the new sliding door. I think I have an idea how to build the jamb. I want a stop for the door when it is closed so I know I have to extend the jamb on that side of the opening into the room.
Can anyone recommend a book or PDF instructions (doesn't have to be free) that shows how to design door jambs for sliding surface mount doors?
Adding jambs to an opening is simple enough---look at instructions for hanging a prehung door--
-buy or make the jambs--
-check the floor for level--
-adjust the jamb side lengths if the floor is out of level--
-glue and nail the head(top) jamb to the sides--
-put it in place and shim and nail---
Now onto buying the surface mount sliding door hardware and a door.
