Back in the day, before Aliens integrated the human race, people were of a manageable size. Doorways were built to accommodate such. Since Aliens flooded the population, people like hubby are too darn tall. Building suppliers had to make doors bigger to accommodate these taller beings. Old houses like ours were built before Aliens landed, therefore, installing doors in older homes can be quite challenging!
Proof is in the picture below.
Thankfully they still make solid doors for such applications.
If you read the labels on these doors, it says BA....meaning Before Aliens,
which also means that it can be trimmed.
A sneak peek at the door before trimming.
Do you ever wonder which chocolate you will pull out of the box?
I figured I pulled a yummy orange cream (my fav) as everything went too good. We were able to get the door jamb fabricated and installed plumb and square with only a few slivers!
Also the inside molding on the window installed...
|See the alien! You guys thought I was kidding!|
A better pic
A solid piece of oak was attached to the inside part of the trim which will become the window ledge. It will make for a strong window ledge. Paint will hide the two different woods.
That's all I've got today.
We'll be able to start on the molding again later this week.
And if you are Canadian, we are looking forward to +1 soon! Even if you aren't, I think you can appreciate the video!
