We have a nice barn on our property. Right now, in addition to the sliding doors, we have two exterior doors. The latter were built from pieces of siding and two cross pieces of wood - not very weather proof.
I'd like to put in "real" exterior doors. I'm thinking steel and hope to tack on the vertical pieces from the old doors so they match the barn siding.
One question - in each opening they kept the (not sure what it's called) sill plate? That is, the 2X6 that sits on the slab that forms the bottom part of the exterior walls. Should I cut this out?
Also, what is the rough opening isn't the right size for a pre-hung door?
I'm reasonably handy with tools, but I wan't to make sure I do this right.
