Do u skim inside the frame..so the frame is sticking out further than the wall..?

lol like your style but its every frame every job not hard to measure the stud work add 12.5 + 12.5 then little bit for skim.
Dont think they own a 6ft level too

And why dont they sell frames off the shelf big enough for dot and dabbed blockwork?

They need to be 6.25" at least and they only sell what they call 6" which are actually 5.75" after plaining.

I've had to get them made on a number of occasions, I hate it when they add strips around the non closing side.

yeah mate for this one particular firm i just plaster round them unless im floating the walls out of course, but its ok i spoke to the gaffer and he said he knows the chippies sheit but hes the best they can get at the mo "just go round em son and the priick can sort it out himself" that was the actuall phrase.
this chippie does silly things though like stud wall boarded out bangs the door frame in itll be shy of the boards on inside of room and bout an inch or more out on the other side
