    Default Door: Internal Frame

    I am doing a remodel of my entry way into a pantry for the boss. I need to build-in two doorways and would like to check the framing design and measurements but can't find a good site with diagrams. The studs are 100mm oregon.

    Google has been corrupted by DIY sites that are simply links to businesses. Does anyone have a good link or know a good book? I'm going to head to Bunnies soon and see if they may have something.

    What dimensions do you need, Groggy?
    I wanted to become a brickie but my old man said "No son, learn a trade."

    Rough opening width and height to start with. Ideally though I'll find a book on framing that simple enough for even me to follow. How to attach to an existing wall and ceiling etc. Simple stuff.

    Assuming a door height of 2040mm and that its a hinged door, not a slider, make the head height 2100mm. Width, door width plus 50mm, if your door studs are straight and plumb otherwise add 65mm. I hope you don't need to make the openings any wider than that.

    As for attaching to an existing wall and ceiling, are you referring to the studs that you are going to install?

    Thanks for that info. I will have to build a joining wall between two existing walls. It is the new section that will have the door in it. I won't have any excuses if it is not plumb and straight.

    Edit: I managed to find a book at Bunnies called The House Building Manual by Allan Staines. It has what I think I need.
