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???

How 'bout making up a frame the exact size of your door, out of some 2x4's and installing the hinges to give it a dry run? Would only take a short time to rig up and may save a bunch of frustration.
