What is the minimum height code requirement for door height. I am making
a bathroom and a closet in the basement. Both doors need to trimmed about
2" from the standard 80" door. Will that violate code?
Per international residential building code adopted by most states, the main
exit door must be 80 inches tall and other exit doors need not be, so I only
guess that interior doors sure can be 78 inches. A basement ceiling must be
7 feet except for special beams that can take another 6 inches. I strongly
suspect you're OK, but call the inspector to be sure.
