Summerhouse build, door frame questions

by Jocarl011 » Mon May 22, 2023 1:42 pm

Hi,

Looking for some advice fitting a door to my summer house build. I was given an external door, large double glazed heavy thing. It has the stop trim all around the outside so I’m assuming I won’t need a stop fitting to any door frame I make?
The summer house is being made with 3x2 studs with 600 centres, 18mm OSB 3 on the outside and inside. Shiplap to finish. Will I need a frame for the door or can I just fix the door straight to the studwork?? Same for the windows too….. I’ve not built the front at all yet by the way.

Thanks

Hi jocarl011,
The door will need a frame and door stops, the windows can be fitted direct between studs.
Regards S
