Default Making a door/door way

I hope I'm posting in the right spot. I am having a little difficulty making a door and a door way. The door needs to have a door frame and I need it to open/close. I know how to make a door sorta. I am just having trouble extruding it in a manner that makes it separate from the door frame. If anyone has any advice, that would be great. I am using autodesk maya 2010. Thanks!

If I were doing it...I would make the door first...then duplicate 3 faces on the sides and top of the door...then you can extrude them out to the required width. Does this make sense mate?? If not I will post a pic or 3 or a video for you.

cheers bullet
