Beta reading for two different authors, plus trying to write on Rimworld #4, plus a little home improvement project…
There is a REASON to buy prehung doors… Grrrr…
This sumbitch took a half day to get installed… Of course the @*(*&#)@! frame was crooked… And tearing off all the crap to get to the frame itself was a non-starter, which is why I didn’t get a prehung one to start with.
Soooo, I ended up using a trick I was taught 50 years ago by an old master carpenter I helped out when I was a teenager. I had to chisel out and inset the top hinge on both the door and the frame, and leave the bottom hinge proud on both the frame to get the door to ‘pull’ in far enough in to actually fit on the other side.
And I proved once again that chisels are sharp… sigh
Yes, I know it ‘opens’ the wrong way, but the entry to that bath is ‘small’, and having the door open in would reduce that space even more, so I made it open out, since I don’t have to get into the linen closet to the right all that often.
And then cooked burgers and brats for a few folks that came over to remember those we’ve lost. It was a long day, but a good day, and time spent with friends is always special, especially when everyone kicks in and helps get things ready.
Light posting and commenting today, lots of reading to do, y’all go read the folks on the sidebar.
