We have started to remove our old doors and closet doors to replace with all new. I have removed the closet doors that were the kind that are on a track. The closet doors were 48'in. Now I have a rough opening of 49'in. I went to the home center and sales guy said I should do the rough opening in drywall and be done with it.

I was wondering about getting some of the 5/8'in jambs at the home center and have them ripped to 3/8'in to give the correct size. I could nail them in place and paint and trim and it be done.

What I was looking for was to keep from having to do the drywall thingy.

Anyone else done this or have any suggestions?
