Default 25" Interior Doors

I have two 25" wide interior doors that I would like to replace, mainly because they are hollow and don't provide much sound insulation. I am quickly discovering that a 25" wide door is a anomaly and am considering building on from scratch. I don't have a extensive work shop, no table saw, router, etc., but what are friends for?

Any advice?

Get a solid wood door and cut it down

Default 25'' interior doors

Your best bet is to custom order the doors from your local door company in your area, it should not be much more than a regular 26'' door will cost.

Solid core doors (those with a wood chip core) have 1" thick splines on the sides, allowing you to cut as much as 1/2" from each side and still have enough real wood for the hinge screws to grab into. They're just like a hollow door, but filled. 80" tall by 26" wide is a standard off the shelf item, which you could then cut the 1/2" off each side.

Optionally, you could do the same with panel doors.
