I will be installing interior French doors in a 60" wide opening between a
Living Room(LR) and Dining Room(DR). The opening is currently trimmed out
(but there are no doors).
#1 I obviously must remove the existing "jamb", and will also remove the
trim on the LR side. Is it advisable to try to keep the DR trim intact, and
shim from one side? OR should I just remove all trim and start from
#2 This is my first pre-hung door installation. (I usually hang doors
myself). Should I leave the doors tacked in the frame when I shim the doors
to fit the Rough Opening?
#3 The wall between the LR and DR is not plumb. The wall leans toward the
LR about 3/8" along the height of the door. (The house is 100+ years old).
Should I install the pre-hung doors plumb, or centered in the wall?
