Re: Rough opening for a 48" X 80" closet door?
Many years ago we had our house framed in then finished it ourselves. Believe me, things can be out of plumb, out of square, and out of level. There are probably more people out there building houses that don't quite know what they are doing than do. Give the opening the extra clearance to save possible aggravation later. I found that the foundation contractor was VERY poor on simple blueprint reading and the framers weren't a whole lot better. Time for some good apprenticeships in the building trades again.
