help! non-standard sized doors too small for non-standard sized doorframes...
1st time poster-- hello everyone...
i recently bought an old house (1922) that had been frankensteined for decades, apparently. everything was paneled... not only the walls, but the doors, the baseboards, the doorframes-- INSIDE the doorframes. i am serious, it was absolutely ridiculous.
anyway-- after removing all the paneling, turns out the doors no longer fit the doorframes. in fact, the doors are 81 inches tall, the doorframes are 83+ inches high. most doors at lowe's are 80 inches tall. the doors also are an inch more narrow than the doorframes.
i thought about "shrinking" the doorframes to fit the doors, but that would mean i would need an 8 inch "jamb" (?) to cover it, which would not look right.
i would appreciate any suggestions... i'm stumped on this one.
thanks in advance!
