Question Resizing a too-large rough opening- door

Hi: One rough opening for door --out of about 15 framed when we had our house rebuilt-- is the wrong size. It measures 83" high by 28" wide. We plan to install a 24" bifold but the opening is too wide and high. Help!
What is the easiest way to resize the opening?
Is there a way to do it without reframing and then time-consuming small-piece drywalling?

Thanks in advance for any wise suggestions!

install blocks around the rough frame to size the opening for a 1* jam frame for the bifold unit...Use long screws or nails to secure the blocks of wood...If casing is wide enough to cover blocks and sit on top of current drywall then no need to patch...
