    I'm converting a car port which used to house the front door (with side light) so there will now need to be a standard 30" internal door there, but there also needs be a step down in to the new room as levels differ.

    Is a standard 32" door frame that includes a (preferably hardwood) threshold available off the shelf?

    Obvs, I'll need to make the aperture smaller for the new door frame: I'll probably tie in some Celcon blocks as that wall is now internal? What tolerance for packs is usually added to a 32" frame when doing the blockwork?

    Any pointers very much appreciated.

    Thank you

    Are you suggesting it's usually a good idea to use an opportunity to install a slightly wider door?

    The other internal doors are all 30" Georgian 6 panel pine in 32" linings

    The aperture (without the old front door) is now 48"

    Just as you wish.

    I read this

    And thought you meant you had a 32" gap.

    Sorry you feel offended.
