First was replacing the front door.
Next, we worked on the bedroom. First, we pulled old carpet up and removed the carpet tack and form padding.
- Installing doors. There is more than one way to install a door. In this case, we removed the door from the frame, plumbed it and then secured it. Other times I have installed doors with the door left in the frame.
- Door handles. We knew about right hand and left hand doors when we bought the door at Lowe's. We were surprised by the door handle latch that was for right hand doors. We learned door handles have a universal piece you pull out and twist to make the latch point the other way.
- Laminate flooring. I don't know if I have ever installed it but it is very easy. Especially with the foam, sliding floor backing on each piece. Once you get a system down, it goes fairly fast. As long as your knees and back holds out...
That was the crux of our projects at Mike and Joan's. It was fun, we learned some more things and were happy with the results.
