Exterior door framing
I own a 2001 Palm harbor dw that has 6" exterior framing. I was looking to replace the cheap looking front door with a nice one from lowes. Of course my door is only 78" tall so the opening would have to be extended to an 82" rough opening. After checking with a stud finder and a finish nail it appears Palm Harbor does not install a header above the door. Is this standard or is it because the framing is 2x6 so it's stronger. Since there is no header I don't see any great difficulty installing a standard door. Also it appears that Palm Harbor could have installed a standard door instead of the "special" 78" door. Was that to make most people come to thim for a new door? $$$ Am I missing something?
