Is there a standard size that the doorway in the framework of a stud wall should be? i.e. assuming I'm using a 2'6" x 6'6" door and an "off the shelf" lining profile what size should the opening be before any linings are fitted; or do I have to get The Boss to decide which lining she wants before I can start?

I used to allow 1 1/4'' for thickness of linings plus a bit so would make the opening size 6'7 1/2'' X 32 5/8'' if opening too big you can always pack with hardboard or folding wedges. that allows for adjustment if stud is not quite plumb.
