NON pre-hung doors

8951 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  RedBear

Does anyone have pre-printed instructions on how to frame and install a non pre-hung door? If not, are there any things to watch out for or common mistakes? What gaps must there be between the door and the framing? and the floor?

I am reinstalling solid wood 6-panel doors that are 1 3/8" thick into new 2x4 framing. I also want to have one of them hinged on the opposite side that it is hinged now.

That's a lot of instructions to type---There are lots of instructions on build the jambs and cutting the hinge butts---I suggest that you go to the library and get a book on basic finish carpentry.

Someone here might feel like writing a book for you---but not me.--Mike---
