i am installing a 30"x80" interior solid core wood door. I am also custom making the jambs for this door. My problem is that the wall leans in about 1" from bottom plate to top plate. However my inside jamb is plumb and the header jamb is level also the striker jamb is plumb but if i put the level on the wall it shows that it leans in about 1" . I think this might cause the top of the door to not be flush and cuase it to be out at the top. Any suggestions.....i was wondering if i moved the top hinge out and bottom hinge in this might help.....is this the way to go???

It's hard for me to tell you what to do. For me to make a decision I would want to look everything over before commiting to a solution. I would go with your gut instinct and what your willing to live with. If I tell you to do it and you don't like the outcome then you'll come back here and give me the what for. I just can't do it. Sorry.
I think that's going to be your best bet. Some problems just need some creative solutions. By the way welcome to the forum.
Glad to hear it turned out ok.
