The new door is in
Well the first stage of the bathroom is complete. Just a simple door. I was lucky, Mark dropped by. I think he likes us being in Florida. Plus he knew it was about time for the block to come out for the door, so he dropped in.
He is sure dad is too old to do this stuff. The door was completed in about 3 days, taking one day to drive Mark to Haines City (south of Orlando) to look at a car he was interested in. After driving it he passed it by. He headed for a friends house then home to Port Richey. Leaving me with the trim and paint (He trusts me to do that. LOL)
But tonight at about 8:30 all the tools were put away, area cleaned up, and scrap lumber stored.
(The door from the dining/living room side. Notice Sherry has moved our big Christmas tree from the Motorhome to our house, so we are moving (slowly))
Caulking done and the two coats of paint applied. Just a simple door, but when it is in concrete block and plaster it becomes a ‘REAL JOB’. This door jamb measures eleven inches, the normal jamb is 4-5 inches. But it is done… The door is the biggest job of the bathroom, in my opinion.
(I had to pour concrete under the door last night. Tonight I added ceramic tile to finish the job.)
Of course I have to break thru the 4-6 inches of concrete to bring the plumbing into the house.
