When one door closes...

Lest the previous post led you to believe that all of today's developments occurred on the outside, let me reassure you that the interior saw its share of action as well.

Indeed, the kablan spent a good part of the day working on the doors. What's the big deal about doors, you ask? Well, apparently, a decade in door years is like... actually, I have no idea what it's like. But the point is that in that time, door standards have changed. In other words, the new doors did not fit our old door frames.

As noted here, the kablan spent a considerable amount of time yesterday on the doors. However, he soon realized that he needed help, and today, he brought [no, not Little Cats A, B, C or D but...] a door guy with him. (The roofer recommended him; they happen to be neighbors.) Here's what they accomplished today:
This is the bathroom door - [Q: When is a door not a door? A: When it's ajar...] - from the outside:
And here it is from the inside:
Here's AMG's door:
And ASG's door:
Meanwhile, before he left for the weekend, the kablan put the silicone on the bathroom sink:
That's it for now.
Good night and Shabbat Shalom from the Our Shiputzim staff.


  1. In other words, the new doors did not fit our old door frames.

    maybe it was because the old door frames did not fit the new doors.

    of course one may say that the door frames were there first. But of course it must have been the frames which changed, since the kablan measured them ( I assume he did) or else how could the doors not fit

  2. YZG was right. He said that I left myself wide-open with this posting...

    Anyway, in the kablan's defense, he did measure the door frames. But the doors' size is not the issue. The problem is that the new doors "work" differently, and he couldn't attach them to the old door frames.

    Shabbat Shalom.
