Forum Title: installing metal doors in basement wall.
I have yet to find the step by step guide to install a door in a brick and block wall. My main concern is how to make sure the structure is sound and strong.

I would carefully cut the flooring to fit around the door frame. Using anyhting but a hacksaw may leave the frame looking worse than if the floor were fitted under.

such an old thread, but i hope i can get some help with a similar project. im comfortable cutting the hole and adding the buck frame, but my concern is the lintel. currently, my door frame goes all the way up to a double sill plate. there is no header, there is no brickwork above the door frame. i want to add support, but if i use a standard 2x6 header, my door will need to be cut short. i only have about 5.5 inches from the joists. can i cut out the double sill and install a header in its place?
