    I normally leave 12-18mm , more so 12mm and then when the carpets go down the door can be shot in . I dont think it,s down to the builder myself , how is he to know if you are having thick or thin carpet , lino or solid wood floors .

    building a wardrobe!advice greatly appreciated!

    I would make boxes to the shape you need them and then fix a face frame to that to hide any gaps between the boxes and ceiling . This would also give you good fixings for hanging rails and adjustable shelves .

    The 6mm timber will want to cup and may split , also your architrave wont have a good fixing to it . If you are going this way i would use 18mm timber and put in a whole new frame ( your architrave will hide the old frame ) Bit of a long winded way to hang a door but each to thier own i spose .
