re:order

we couldn't find any 5-panel doors at the salvage yard (i guess no one is getting rid of them), so i just placed an order for four new flat panel 5-panel doors.



i would have liked to have ordered all the doors we need now, but the budget won't allow for that. we're getting pre-hung doors, so we don't have to deal with jambs and machining the doors for hinges and knobs. we are getting oil-rubbed bronze hinges and we'll be painting the doors white to match all of our [future] trim.

unfortunately we have to wait 6-8 weeks for them to come in, but my mom will be happy we're on our way to finally getting doors on the bathrooms, at least. she's not going to come visit until we have doors. hmm, maybe we should have held off on ordering them.... (ha! kidding!)

MMMmmm... prehung sounds so nice! Especially after OUR door wrangling.

Too bad you aren't around here... there were lots of 5 panel doors for $10 down in Denver yesterday!

Wow, $10??! Hmm, I wonder what shipping costs would be from Denver...

I just saw a 5-panel door laying on the sidewalk this morning. I didn't have a tape on me, but I think it was a little narrow, 2'-4" or even 2'-0" wide, probably 7'-0" tall? e-mail me if you want the address...pretty close to your house.
