I am in the process of installing a pet door and there really isn't any ideal area in the living area to install it due to either things on the inside that are in the way or on the outside that are in the way etc.
I found one location that would be perfect for it until I cut the drywall back and found a center stud. I did check this wall with a beam finder prior and knew it was there but I wanted to see what I was working with anyway.
This is an exterior wall that leads into the back yard but due to the beam, I am not sure how to proceed.
I found the second image online regarding a possible workaround but wanted to find out if there are any prerequisites for such process. The issue is that the holes on the right side are to the left of the beam that supports the window frame so putting in another piece of wood for the "jack" would probably come out too far and interfere with the the dog door it self.
Do I have any options for this?
