I have doors!!
Thanks to Greg, he’s awesome! Bentley Windows and Doors gave me a deal on pre-hanging the doors I got of of Craigslist. Greg happened to be in town for the weekend from Singapore, he was VERY nice to spend part of his time back giving me a hand on the house.
I also got some more of the furring done around the outside. The plan of attack I think should be to trim out the windows so I can finish the furring strips, order my elastomeric roofing product (waiting on a couple answers from the manufacturer still), I have a lot more work to do to get the pallet wood ready to go up but that needs to start happening (on a side-note, my friend Antonio showed me this, I may have to see about making something like that!). The big project for the weekend is to get the house wired, for real this time. When the doors weren’t in it made it pretty impossible, the wind would come through and rip out all the insulation. Now, thanks to Greg we are good to go!
One thing I learned today: with the hardware on the doors, the screws in the receiving plate for the door knob only go into the door frame, for the deadbolt they go through the frame and into the studs, much more secure! I never knew that, It makes sense, i just never thought of it, I thought it was interesting :).
I ran out of light but I got some pictures:
