Another week, and more freebies dropped into Hick's lap for Pony House!
Remember This Guy, who sold us Hick House for $5,000? The one who had some surgery, and his wife went out for a smoke break at the hospital, and tripped and broke her hip? So Hick did errands for them during their convalescence. Well, they have a college-graduate son who has a construction business. He's currently working on a house remodel.
Hick got a call from This Guy's Son, saying he had FIVE interior doors that Hick could have if he wanted them. Otherwise, they were going on the burn pile. Are you kidding? Of course Hick wanted them! Hick drove about 20 miles to the job site. He helped This Guy's Son put in an upstairs window. I don't think that was a condition of the door-giving. Then Hick loaded up his five new used doors in SilverRedO, and took them to Pony House.
They are six-panel doors like we have in our house. Only these free doors are painted white, and ours just have a stain on the wood.
The door pictures were taken in the house where Hick picked them up. That's not Pony House! No drywall and uniform windows like that in Pony House.
Hick says there are two 36-inch doors, which will go in the Master Bedroom and Master Bathroom. Also a 32-inch door, which is the size of the Bedroom 2 doorway. Then he has 30-inch and 28-inch doors. He was planning to use the 28-inch on Bathroom 2, but I think it might work better for the furnace room he's creating. Sheesh! We can afford to buy a door or two... No need to make the entrance to a bathroom be a Fat Man's Squeeze! That's the name of a particularly narrow passage through the granite boulders at Elephant Rocks State Park, near Backroads.
One of the 36-inch doors includes the frame. Hick will build frames for the other doors. He's good at that. Hick says the doors would probably cost about $100 each if they weren't free. I suppose The Pony will get to choose the doorknobs, unless somebody drops a box of free ones in Hick's lap.
