Got a lotta doors to hang and have gotten varying opinions on split vs. solid jambs. I’m using solid core masonite doors that are fairly heavy, and one camp says solid jambs will have better integrity. Other camp says a good long screw in each hinge will be enough to cope with the door mass. Looking at split jambs, they do look rather, um, delicate. My finish carpenter says he hasn’t hung any solid jamb doors in a long time, but says he can deal with either. He suggests ordering the doors without the stop if I go the solid jamb route in case door is warped or wall is out of whack. I plan on living in this house forever. Opinions?
Crucial elements such as improved drainage, earthquake resistance, and a curbless shower enable this couple to live on the same property as family members.
