I put up a new wall and want to put a door in, could you tell me if I have to buy a complete door jamb or can I make my own and if so could you tell me how to do it?

Buy the complete door with jamb. Don't even waste your time making a jamb. Lots of low prices on doors this time of year. I just bought 2 yesterday for a customer and got top of the line decorative doors with jambs for $98.00 each. If I would have had to pay $125 each still a real bargain. Good Luck

Unless you have a decent table saw, I wouldn't recommend even trying this as a DIY project.

Thanks for your help, it was really appreciated but I guess I forgot to mention to you that I already have the door, so what I was wondering was how to build a jamb to fit this door annd what I would need or if it would be better to just buy a jamb that would fit this door. Thanks again, Jim

Cool

Jim,
Jack and MTAC were right on the first time. Buy a pre-fab door jam that your door will fit. I've only hung maybe 15-20 pre-fab doors, and that was enough work to get right. If you're like me, if you tried to build one from scratch, you'd hang yourself before you hung the door. LOL
