Lightyear Sunken Bath Episode 7 – Doorways and Bonding

Most of my work is done as a solo act. I work better this way. However there are times where you need someone on the other end. This weekend my daughter gave me a hand moving and installing the doors on this project. She had recently gotten back into town after a few years elsewhere, and was up hanging out with the old man.

Here she is removing the trimĀ  prior to moving it to its new location. This opening will framed in for a bifold door for the utility storage room

Here is that door in its new location looking out.

Here is the door from the flip side. Trim will be a challenge.

So you don’t think that the hinge lobby has gotten to me, no project of mine would be complete without ….. A pocket door! A lot of builders hate pocket doors. Most of them don’t have anybody on their crews who can read a level, or understand that a pocket door is not a shim and trim operation. It takes more time, but is worth it in space gained.

As I mentioned previously, I mostly work solo, which is why you see pictures of the work and none of me. It’s not about me. However this weekend my daughter managed to snap a couple of pics for those of you dying to see the man behind the camera. I am standing on a bucket and am not 7 feet tall.

Here is the flip side. Happy now?

We also ripped out one of those aluminum patio/arcadia doors and replaced it with this number.

And that’s how we spent some of the weekend. We spent the rest pigging out and watching movies.

    Hey there,

    I am anxiously awaiting the next episode! I am thoroughly enjoying your blog but I am having trouble visualizing the door placement. Maybe I need a floor plan. There are four doors total, right? The pocket door, the bifold, and two in the storage room, one being the closet and the other the outside door. Whoops, I forgot the bedroom slider replacement door. See why I am confused? Please post soon.
