Okay blokes as Im about to get over a severe case of "avoiditatallcostsitis" well some of it anyway Im not goin near the bathroom yet!!! :eek: or the new floor in the bedroom either... mmm to say nothing of the new verandah out the back or the levee banks down at the creek... in fact Im gonna just do this before I buggar of back to work again
Im about to embark on something Ive never done before and Im wondering how to go about it
So when the flood came through it forced the front door out of its frame... and now she wants me to replace it with a new door shes bought... trouble is the new door is smaller than the old one! and no returns on this fella she stated "I want kookaburras in the glass panels" so she went and got kookaburras in the glass panels and "damnit Shane you can sort it so I gets koookaburras in the glass panels of my front door" sigh
So now Ive got an existing door thats 860mm wide and a new door thats 830mm wide... now the door frame is cracked at the top so I probably should replace the whole thing but theres this light switch see right on the inside beading of the existing frame... I for various reasons Im not going into do not go near power or light switches other than to turn them on or off... so I was thinking (exceedingly dangerous habit that)
What if... I take of the centre strip of the frame and fit a cut to size board of Jarrah to the frame underneath that which would then with a tad of in situ planing make the frame the right size for the new door then reattach the strip?
Okay so the door goes to the lock and the door butts to the strip strip being in the middle of the frame means that the front door and flyscreen door meet at the strip (this strip is 1 1/2in wide by 1/4in thick and goes around the entire frame)
Or do I have to bite the bullet and make a totally new frame? and hire a bloody leccy to do the light
