The Doors

One of the things we realized when we bought this house is that the doors had to go.

Step one

Spend a lot of time on the internet trying to figure out what the hell we're doing

Step two

Realize we're in over our heads and call my dad for help

Step three

Wait for my dad to get to town

Step four

Matt and my dad go to Home Depot and buy lots of tools

Step five 

Tear all the trim and doors off the wall

Step six

Buy doors.  

Step seven

Realize that we can't buy interior double doors at Lowe's or Home Depot, and we should have gotten the doors before we tore the other ones off the wall.  We're going to have to live with a hole in the wall for the next 3 weeks.

Step eight

Realize that doors won't fit in our car (which shouldn't be a surprise if you drive a Saturn Ion) and rent a van from Uhaul.

Step nine

Put up the rest of the doors

Step ten

Drink beer and eat pizza

Step eleven

Realize that in the next few weekends, we have a wedding and Mothers' Day, and painting the doors and installing trim is going to have to wait.  Promise blog readers that they'll get pictures later.
