    Having three large pine trees removed from our property today, because of beetle infestation.

    Damn beetles! Our climate will become just a little bit warmer without those trees...

    So I was looking at replacing 4 of my 7 interior doors with pre-finished, pre-hung six-panels.

    1. Take rough measurements to price out the doors, knowing full well I can't *really* measure properly until the old ones are out.
    2. Note that the pre-hung doors all come in 4.5" deep frames, which makes sense for interior walls framed out in 2x4s.
    3. Take a second look at my door jambs.
    4. They're all 3.5" wide.
    5. Realize all of my interior walls are framed in 2x3s. Quality!

    This house is weird. Typical concrete block foundation construction and 2x8 floor joists, but then the exterior framing is basically like a pole barn. I don't think any of my interior walls are even load-bearing, lol. Not that I intend to find out...

    I'm still going to do it though. For the closet door I can just shove the extra frame width into the closet and nobody will know. For the other doors I guess I'm going to have to pack out the trim with a piece of 1/2" thick flat stock and just have ΞXTRΛ░THICC(パっ翁)mouldings around those doors
