Door Framing Tip Video
Hi, I'm Tim Carter and I'm here at a new home construction site in New Hampshire. Want to show you something that is kind of cool with a little bit of detective work.
Look at the sawdust near the door frame opening. Do you know what caused that pile of sawdust? That tells you that something used to be there and has been removed.
At another door opening, you can see that the bottom wall plate running all the way along the wall. This is what helps keep the legs of the door frame in align. Without the bottom plate, one door leg might be tilting in and the other out. That would make the door installation tough. By keeping the base plate in place when you frame the wall, you keep the door frame in proper alignment.
