The wife is now in full nesting mode and wants all projects done before the baby gets here.

When replacing doors, do I measure the door itself or the frame? We will be purchasing pre-hung doors.
You measure the rough opening to be sure. Don't forget to measure the jamb width as they can differ, especially in older houses and modular houses.

The actual door size will vary a bit from manufacturer to manufacturer. That's why you measure the rough opening, because that's the measurement you will give to the person taking the order. Along with the jamb measurement. Measure all the jambs, don't do a few and figure they're all the same.
