Like every other project in this dang house, nothing is easy. I ordered a new entry door, and it had to be custom built because of it's size. It is 42" wide and 84" tall (non-standard). It was built with vertical grain fir, and was PERFECTLY SQUARE. I took the old door in for them to match the new door, but they assumed the door was square, and it's not. I had to taper the top of the door and raise the sill to allow the sweep to close off the bottom gap. Other than that, it was a perfect fit ...
These are the before (painted) and after (finished) pictures...I still have some interior trim finish work to do.
