Summary: Learn how to install a new door and install a new door frame.
To fit a door, you will require a lining or frame fixed to the rough opening in the wall, which the door can be attached to. Alternatively, you can buy a doorset, which comes with the door and frame pre-fitted and can be fixed directly to the rough opening.
To keep the frame firm while it is fitted, fix two or three battens across the frame.
Position the doorset into the rough frame and insert wooden wedges between the opening and the doorset to maintain its position.
From the back of the doorset, fix the frame by driving the supplied screws or nails through the frame and into the opening.
Conceal the exposed area of the opening with timber strips glued to the rough frame.
