The homeowner wished to have this front door replaced, while eliminating the 14″ sidelight altogether.  This became tricky due to the fact that the house was framed with 2×6 walls, and the replacement door was designed for a 2×4 construction wall.  Our solution was to use a jam extension kit from Menards (about $28), which includes wood jam extensions (perfectly measured & cut) and a snap-on aluminum threshold extender.  Quite nice!  We framed in the sidelight, covered it with Typar housewrap, and the homeowner will install special order vinyl shake siding.  Job well done, and it took just a half day!
