Nice job ! Really, nice job!

Nice door, ours is fiberglass
I guess the front porch is next

I'm interested in the brown framing below the door
Is that for the porch...or ?

Scubadude: yup, it's foundation grade PT to keep the blocks a couple inches away from the wall until I get the porch and rails, deck or "whatever" she wants out there done.
What Have I Done: Thanks, like I said, I owe it all to gma2rjc. She got me such a good deal on it, there was no way I could turn it down. (just like SHE couldn't turn it down for $50.00!) It WAS supposed to be for HER front door, but it didn't work for her.
But it was exactly the right size for MY home! (Thanks again, gma2rjc)

I should add too that she even drove 89 miles and DELIVERED it to us! *WHATTA PAL! WHATTA PAL!* *cheering*
We spent a very nice day together. I even got to say a few things in-between her and my wife talking!
She's the greatest!

Really nice looking door. If you ever want to breed that owl I've got a male stud for hire.

You're welcome DM. I'm really glad you and your wife like it. It sure looks beautiful on your house.

As heavy as it is, I was sure it would take at least two guys to install it. I can't imagine how you did it by yourself. Nice job!

With it being oak, was it difficult cutting the recess for the hinges to fit in?

I enjoyed the day too. Mrs. DangerMouse is a wonderful person. I really enjoyed our visit. Next time we'll try to let you get a word in edgewise. lol

All of your projects that you've posted here on the forum look great in the pictures. But they look awesome up close. Your house is looking great too. You've done a lot of work on it.

Btw, I was EXTREMELY close to getting a couple of those magic boxes open. If I had tried a little longer, say, a day or two, I might have opened them.

yes and no, being solid, it chiseled easier than veneer over pine, which can split and do weird things, but drilling holes for the hardware was harder and took longer. and yes, it was a real pita to put in by myself, but I managed.
