Making an exterior door frame?
Has anyone done it/ have pointers? An interior one seems pretty straight forward, but not sure on exterior.
My door is leading into my front porch which is an "Open porch" but will be closed off come winter. The door now is a cheap metal door with the frame(original frame ripped out) I found the original Douglas fir door down my basement and want to install that after I finish stripping the paint.
My question is how would I go about making sure there are no "drafts" coming through the door. I have never done this before. The original way the front door was set up was that there was another wood door on the outside like a storm door(My neighbors house is original 1900s and that's what they have) So I would assume that's how most of the elements stayed out. Plus the craftsmanship was superb back then.
Thanks in advance.
