new doorways


breezeway door and frame - BEFORE


the mouse door


door frame after handyman ryan came over -
note the hole in floor from, um, cat pee!


after risking life and limb to prime entire thing
whilst perched precariously!


okay, that is just crazy good.
i cannot believe i waited 3 years to do this!


ah. the project list is shrinking ever so slowly. it's a real full-time job to get an 81 year old house ready to sell. however, mabel shines up nicely. tomorrow, a nice semi-retired gentleman is coming over to fix the rotted wood on the sunporch. my main 'big job' is to tar the roof next weekend! that is one adventure i would love to bypass!

many thanks to miss rani for lending her whole family for an afternoon to help with trimming some windows and doors!

i am actually enjoying fixing the old girl up. it makes me love her all the more....and happy to know i am leaving her better than when i came.

Are YOU tarring the roof? Is that safe?
