I just bought a steel door w/ frame.
I would like to install it in my basement
to make an entrance to my garage.
The wall is a hollow cinder block that is 3 and 5/8inches thick. But first I have to knock a hole in the wall.
The door frame height is 82inches tall and the ceiling is about 84 and 1/2 inches from the floor. leaving only 2 1/2 inches to work with.
I wanted to cement this door frame in place.
Does anyone have any helpful advice or tips?
I can't seem to find any info on this type of installation.
Is there a guide out there somewhere?
I don't want to use wood in the installation except to maybe temporary hold in place and not as headers or trimmer studs. Unless that is the norm, I don't know.
