The location of the interior studs depends upon the width of the door, and so are not marked on the blueprint.

Like the back panel, the front panel has a 3.5" overlap on the side to cover the stud of the side panels. For the sake of neatness, you may wish to have a 5" strip for the opposite side, where the door hangs, to cover the join.

You may wish to hang the door in the panel before taking it out into the field. If that's the case, you'll want to install the kickstop boards to keep the door from falling through the doorway during transport. See the assembly instructions about installing the door for more details.
