comment Door jamb on a 2.5" thick wall
Nice idea. This wall doesn't have the space for it but I'll keep it in mind for future consideration. Thanks.

I added an edit to the question. I have a door and casing that I'd like to use. In this scenario, would it make sense to put together a custom door frame?

I may be having trouble visualizing but in the first option it sounds like you're describing adjusting the size of a door rather than making/installing a jamb for a thin wall. Can you please clarify?

comment Looking for alternatives to AutoCad to make floorplans and interior elevations for my kitchen
Sketchup is fantastic. Watch a few video tutorials and make plenty of use of your middle mouse button/scrolly. It makes using the tool 3x faster.

comment How to make a 6 inch hole through a brick wall for venting
Thanks, all. I decided to use a rectangular exhaust vent. About 3x10". Hopefully that will make it easier to make a hole with similar dimensions by removing bricks.

Do you know whether 6" masonry hole saw bits are generally available at local stores? I'm having trouble finding one. Thanks.

It doesn't look like HD and Lowes carry masonry hole saws. I'm in a city so there may be some specialty tool stores but I don't really know what to search for. What kind of tool stores might have larger hole saws (e.g. lumber, plumbing, electrical, etc)? Thanks, Shirlock.

Thanks, Ian. How far from the corner do you think the hole needs to be?

comment Why should I not use standard “house” bricks for a patio?
Yea, we're happy. One other relevant thing to point out is that our patio is really a patio plus parking pad. In other words, we park our car on the same bricks and they still hold up.

Also old bricks were about half the price of new bricks from Home Depot.
