I dought you will find a 30" extetior door that is not "Custom Made".

Are you sure you don't want to takle this or hire someone to inlarge the opening?

Hi, yeah it is getting to be a bigger job than first thought but it's gotta be done. I doubt I will go the enlarging route as I I just redid the drywall and paint as part of the remodel. It looks like Milgard or Thermatrue might have 30-inch models--the rep is calling me Monday.

Daryl and gang, I found 30 inch fiberglass half-light w/ internal grid doors by both Milgard and Therma-tru. They are only about $60 to $100 more than the Masonite brand and are higher quality. And, I don't have to ruin my house to fit a 32. This also means I can install myself and save $1000 labor for two doors. Woo-hoo!
