I always wanted a 1934 Ford, but never owned on. Coulda bought one in 1955 for $50. but didn't have the $50!
Sherry and I worked from 8:30 to 4. We removed the old door and storm door. This is a 32” back door into the kitchen. I never understood it, and cannot remember hanging a 32” exterior door. The 32” is so un-handy. Many things will not go thru it and make it hard getting things like a refrigerator nowadays thru that opening.
JoAnn’s house is brick veneer and makes it a BIG job to change it to a 3’ door. The mason’s did a good job of a plumb line but mighty tight to get the door in place. Without my helper I could not have done the job. To tell the truth Sherry is too much of a doer to make a good helper in most cases. But today she did good. I say that not as a negative remark, but being a good helper is tough (IF you are a doer!) Most of the time Sherry starts off well but then finally says, CALL ME when you need me. (HINT!, I’ve things to do) That (CALL ME) seldom works. I will not call. I can usually go do or get what I need instead of ‘waiting’. In my youth I was my mentor’s helper, if I was not by his side and he had to wait, his statement was true, “Dollar waiting on a dime Jackie.”
Today we worked well together, although she had to wait for me a couple times when I did something wrong and had to reverse myself. Both these doors were high dollar doors therefore have more bells and whistles.
The storm door had 9-10 pages of inst. And came without handles, JoAnn had to buy the handles separate, and they alone were $44. These were handles only, no lock. LOL
We must go back, I was beat and did not get the closers installed. But the job looks good
