Dad came down this morning to help get the front and mudroom doors in.
Based on how long the other doors took
and how heavy the front door is,
I expected it would take about 6 hours;
4 for the front
and 2 for the mudroom.
It only took about 3 hours for both, though
(and it was only in the mid 80's,
compared to the hundred degrees Bran and I have been working in)
so we worked on the back porch, too,
and finished the decking.
(though by then,
the temperature had increased quite a bit,
we were in the sun.
So - not so pleasant....)
I've been learning a ton
through this house-building venture,
and there are lots of things I can do by myself
and pretty much anything with Pex
but I'm not yet ready to install a door.
They seem awfully finicky to me.
You may remember that even though we splurged on the door,
we weren't just crazy about it.
But - it's grown on us,
and after we got it in,
Tyler and Brandon and I all agreed,
it was a really good choice.
(but still a bit fancy for our blood...)
The mudroom entrance.
that looks exactly like I've always imagined.
