I was just gonna go do a LITTLE bit.
Anyway it’s too cold & yucky to do anything OUTSIDE the tinker’s wagon but I thought maybe I’d get a little bit done inside. Doors need doorframes, but doorframes should be the entire thickness of the wall, but the wall is going to be thicker than just the 2x2s I framed it with. Therefore, the obvious next step was to do the bits of inside wall above & below where the doorframe will go.
See above for the bottom part. I’m planning to use pallet wood & other scrap for the inside walls. It’s free, minimal effort, & is gonna look REALLY cool.
It was easy enough to cut two pieces to size, sand down the side that’ll face inside, & screw those down, & I think that’s where I ran into trouble, because it was just enough to warm up.
That gave me the measurement for the width of the doorframe boards, so I thought, cool, I’ll do the bottom & top pieces of that, too.
…the which took approximately ten more minutes, most of which was sanding. & then I had the PERFECT boards to do the sides of the doorframe, too, just sitting there in the corner, already nice & dry, & well, you know how THAT goes.
Anyway the side door now has a nice doorframe.
By the time I was done, 1) it was snowing, 2) I had taken off my flannel shirt because I was too warm, & 3) fortunately I had done enough I felt pretty good about stopping. Especially because the next bit would’ve been putting the door in the doorframe, & that’s a ‘once you start you’ve got to finish’ job because the door is currently leaning against the side of the tinker’s wagon to keep the rain out.
But hey, doorframe!
This was posted originally to, a little over a week ago.
If you want to see these posts sooner, & not incidentally help support me & my cats in our travels & such, the way to do that is tofor as little as a buck a month.
I’d REALLY like that.
