Hi Folks,
I am new to this forum. I have a bathroom that is made of concrete walls. I need to put a door there but the jams are the thickness of a cinder block. I went to Home Depot only found the standard door jams that I think are 4 inches or so. Can I order a special door jam somewhere or do I have to make a special jam? I am doing this in Oak if it makes a difference... Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks !

Dano

What is it with that response? Can't a guy come to this site for a little help without having the experience that you do? Is it your job here to tear people down? Jeez, man. Does bukemando sound like an established contractor to you?
This site is full of serious talent, and I would hope someone could come here with an honest question without being insulted.

Steve, theparrot is not the brightest bird in the tree, that is one of his favorite postings. It's supposed to be a smilie but it hasn't worked since we were graced with his presence, he's even been told that it doesn't work but he keeps trying.
All BB's get goofs that pass through or get canned. Just ignore it and it will go away.

If the masonry opening allows, wrap it w 1x or 2x w/ tapcons and \ PL 400. Hang the door flush to the room the door swings into and trim out. Then rip extension jambs out of 1x for the opposite jamb (leave a 3/16 exposure around door jamb) shim and trim.
