Basement door is up

It isn't pretty and it doesn't fit properly but the original cellar door is hung. We had to trim part of the railing back with the jig saw and then sanded the threshold. Drywall mud and layers of paint prevented the door from closing. I still need to borrow my father's planer and do a little work on the door edge but at least it is on the hinges. I was pretty excited to have most of the tools that we needed to use. This was the first time I broke out my new sander. I already had one but this came in a set of power tools and has a filter on it to eliminate some of the sanding dust. Very cool.

Accomplishment of a few more steps in this home owning journey...hooray!

I have a sander like this and it is a gret one.

Have a wonderful productive week!
