All answers are "2"...... for any door except perhaps entry doors with very thick frames.

2" over door width
2" over door height
2 studs to each side.

Almost 2 easy, eh?

Admittedly, I make sure if I do error, it's a quarter or so on the bigger side.

But never make the mistake of thinking "one size fits all". This kind of lazy thinking will invariably come back to bite you in the arse.

One of my most difficult tasks (since I did mostly custom homes) was getting it pounded into my foremen and super's heads that they will never just frame for "standard" anything. The prints come with measurements and specifications clearly spelled out for a reason. That reason is that they are to ALL be read and understood before attempting any construction.

This day and age, nothing should be considered "standard"... at least not in my world of customs.
