|The front door as it's been since last December.|
To start, a threshold was needed.
|Dan made this one out of a 1 inch oak board.|
|Screws were countersunk and the holes filled with dowel rod.|
For the interior trims the goal is to simply cover the rough edges. The problem is that none of the doors and windows we install seem to be the same depth as the walls of the house. Oh well.
|There were lots of gaps. Polyurethane foam fills them and insulates.|
|Ready to fill the gaps and paint|
|Our living room walls are cement board & difficult to work with.|
|My splurge was a new vent register! About $12 at Lowes.|
|Colors in this photo are probably the most accurate.|
Now it's my turn to caulk and paint.
Photos of the finished living room (at last) can be seen here.
