In my basement I am renovating one of my rooms that has a 30" door.
There is no jamb, the hinges are screwed directly into the 2X3
framing, and the walls were 70's style wood paneling that were nailed
up to the edge of the door frame. The door worked well with no
problems, but now I am replacing the walls in this room with
sheetrock. My options are:
1) remove old door, and put in new 28" door with jambs ( since framing
is already there), but I'm concerned with making the opening 2 inches
smaller, poses a problem when trying to get furniture in this room.
Also because of space limitations, I cannot extend opening frame to
32" to accomodate a 30" prehung door.
Leave door as is , and sheetrock up to edge of the door using a J-bead
or corner bead to finish off, paint inside frame, and put molding on
