I have been looking everywhere and am starting to feel like I might be crazy. I'm looking for prehung interior doors that don't have trim already installed. The only doors I've seen come with the standard window/door trim but we will be building a home with more craftsman trim. I don't want to have to rip off new trim just to redo it. Am I missing something? I hope I'm just not looking in the right place or asking the right questions.

Thanks!

Just order flat jamb doors.
Make sure you order them to the right width, plaster walls take a different width jamb.
There should not be any up charge.

Do you save any money getting a flat door jamb over the ones with moulding? I would hope so but it doesn't always work out that way....

Thanks!

Almost all the doors you are seeing are split-jamb door where the two halves slide together for a faster install.

Flat jamb doors with stop will cost you quit a bit more that the HD or Lowes in stock price, like $105 for something you see there for $78. A millworks store is the place to shop.

Maybe things are different over there. Around here Lowes and HD will charge extra for anything not in stock.

I went to a local mill works shop since the above mentioned pair don't do special orders real well. The local guy was about $10 more than the BORGs as a base price and with the flat jamb it was 105 for for a BORG $78 door. I considered it a bargain since I got it in a week.
