Re: How do you raise a door to clear flooring?
Take the casing off the top. If you've got at least a 3/4" gap between the jamb and the header, then you won't have to modify any of the framing.
I outlined the basic process of resetting a door jamb in this thread:
An exterior door will be a little more difficult because you may have to modify the siding a little, and there will probably be long screws into the framing rather than just nails. You'll need to remove and replace those screws. Plus, you'll have to raise the threshold.
