(Yes, we know this step should have already been completed, but we
seemed to have other priorities!)
Our friend, Kevin, owned a nice door hinge jig, so he showed Chip how
to use it by installing the first door.
Chip installed the next two doors by
himself. This is not as easy as it looks!
We used stainless steel
Yeah...we finally have a bathroom door But then we had to take them
down for 5 coats of finish.
Chip installed the door jams that Clada pre-finished; the trim was
installed after the doors were fitted.
This is what the doors look like after final installation. Woo
still have two louvered doors
to complete, but they required spray finishing so we're going to do
In return for his help, Chip lends Kevin a
hand during concrete pours.
Chip made a small door
for a bathroom cubby hole.
doors were completed a year later...they required over 40 hours of hand
sanding, plus lots of room because
and varish and to be applied with a sprayer. Chip got better and
better since these were sprayed 6 times.
The last of the apartment doors are
installed. All we have left is a little trim on the laundry room
We stained the laundry room doors with red brown stain before using
oil-based polyeurathane. This
