Installing a door with exterior rigid insulation
I feel comfortable installing all my windows as “outies”, …I feel I can support and anchor them comfortable, but what about a heavy sliding glass door…wouldn’t that have to set on solid framing? I plan to go 2×6 walls, with 2 layers of 1.5 rigid insulation, rain screen, and cedar siding. I have been looking at youtube videos, finehomebuilding, this site and others and can’t find the details on how to install a heavy sliding glass door with rigid foam on the outside…please help.
