A door to the future
For some reason, I keep forgetting to put up a status report on the door. Our goal was to have it finished by the end of the year. We didn't quite get to the "finished" part. However, the door is blocked in place and we can enjoy its primary benefit--all that great light streaming in through the large glass pane.
It's going to take a lot of tedious shimming work to get the door finished. Neither upright beam is plumb and the opening isn't square either. Dex came over the other day and was as perplexed as we were about how to mount the door. It doesn't really matter much. We'll figure it out one way or another. In the meantime, it's great to have that large dark area punctuated by some much appreciated light!
