Week69 - 3Feb 2003

Progress this week

Main focus this week was on internal door fitting. Ideally we wanted cottage style ledge & brace doors throughout. Unfortunately, 10 of the 39 doors had to be fire doors and you can not buy ledge & brace fire doors (unless you know better!). Solution? Make our own! We (my carpenter) took a conventional fire door (very cheap) and then panelled it in pine to match the others. Once stained they look fantastic as you will see next week..........
