Alright, so I am in the middle of doing my first remodel and have everything laid out nicely except my fridge...it's huge! The only option I have to maintain my wide open concept is to remove the back door, frame and close it off to place the fridge in front of it. However, I still want access from my back yard and my only option there is to remove these double windows. I am just looking for someone to tell me what I have not thought of yet and answer a few questions I have. Here�s how I envision the process. -remove frame around window -uninstall windows -sawzall the opening to my desired size - create a single header and double studs around opening - add footer and mount the door frame - seal it, frame it and adjust. I feel like there can�t be much more to the process. If I am wrong please let me know I had measurement, but I am at work and left them at home. Heres a few photos, so tips?

In the United States, there are two common backsets for residential door locks: 2 3/8 inches and 2 3/4 inches. Have you set to the proper set?

Thanks for the info, that's what I was looking for. I will do the three inch extension and double jack with king post. The fridge is an LG fridge, maybe not abnormally large, but still there is just no place for it to go with out ruining the full open concept. As for the electrical, Ill remove the plaster and handle that first. Is there a common practice for this? Would a junction box extension along the floor joists in the basement be acceptable? Ill measure the current man door tomorrow, I am guessing around 32-36?

Usually the best thing to do is just add additional outlets. If the wire runs through the length of the wall, you can put an outlet on one side of the door, then run new wire up and over the new door header to go from that box to another recepticle on the other side of the door. Refrigerators need to be on their own circuit.
