Yay! The rain has retreated so we have a chance to do the last re-framing project for our building! The front door, whose handle and lock we bought months and months ago! Again, the door was a little taller and a little wider than the original, so we had to cut out and reframe the opening.
We also had to move the stairs away from the door so we could get at all of the screws that were holding it in. This made for many attempted falls on both our parts as we kept forgetting that the ground was suddenly a LOT further away.
Once everything was reframed, it was delightfully easy to slide the new door into place and secure it!
I had the honor of installing our lock and handle, and they work perfectly!
Now we don;t have to worry about not having a key on us all the time, just a spare tucked away in the case of a dead battery:-)
