One thing I would add is that if you think you might want a door in
the opening at some time in the future you should make the finished opening
width match a standard door width: 30", 32", 36", etc. I have added doors
to these cased openings a number of times over the years and it is much
easier if the original carpenter was allowing for a future possible door.
If no door is in the offing I think I would probably leave the drywall and corner
bead in place and cut down on the dust factor a little bit....Always keeps the Mrs
