Why Is It???
Wednesday afternoon I took one of my workers over to a friends house to install a new patio door. The old one was rotten and when we removed the old door the sub flooring was rotten also. So we replace the flooring and rotten jack studs, tried like double heck to shim the dang, double opening door and it was one of those days when nothing went right. So we put the door in the opening, took the packing strap and screwed it in place, taped up the gaping holes and told her we'd be back sat.
Fast forward to today, everything fell into place. Door shimmed up easy, got both sides to swing, latch and lock, installed the hardware and insulated the frame.
Why is it you sometimes have to walk away and attempt it another day. Just wish I was making money on the deal, but oh well, it's about done now. Glad to help a friend out.
