    What size if framing opening for 36" door?

    I am starting to frame the wall for the open side of my shop.

    I am going to put in a 36" door. How big should be rough framing opening be?

    Just for fun, I'll add that no one seems to make 34" prehung doors - 36, 32, 30, even some 28's. So if you want an excuse to make your own doors in the face of SWMBO pressure to just buy ugly pre-hungs, just make all your rough openings 36" wide
