I have used a similar kit that the BORG sells for their exterior doors - Feather River, I think.  I don't know if they are brand specific because of the locking joint at the metal threshold, and I don't recall the price.  Sure makes it nice for the door to swing the full 1800.

I’m not on the Amish carpentry bandwagon.  I’ve seen too many shoddy jobs.

No internet or TV, work only with their brothers, so they remain old school and their buildings show it.  Don't keep up with the latest building materials.

I don't agree or disagree with anything said about the Amish construction skills, this is the only thing I've had done that an Amish crew did. But my door problem wasn't their doing. The general contractor is the one who ordered the wrong doors (maybe on purpose to save money; or he just didn't care, or he didn't know the difference, or all the above) and the Amish just built the place using what he provided. I did notice that as I examined my doors for removal, they nailed the thing in through the brickmould...I've not seen that before and it makes things more complicated removing the door frame. It also seems they may have been paid by the nail, given the number of them they used....not only in the door but pretty much everywhere else.
