Some days ARE better than others. Some days are just cleaning. Some are running errands for materials. Some are spent just imagining how to do a unique, special, and affordable renovation to the gallery. On occasion there is a great sense of accomplishment and reward. I used to think that climbing mountains taught you patience. Boy was I wrong! LIFE teaches you patience.
Today we finished the new steps, and the new (sustainably harvested) African mahogany doors arrived. The large one (without the frame) is 4' X 8'. Now that's a door. The steps are made from solid 4" X 12" lumber and are anchored directly to the outside of the vault wall. I'd bet in 1920, they never planned on that happening!!
Pictured on the steps is Brad Klein. Brad is where the Ideas meet Reality. Thanks for the doors Steve Caskey. After seeing these doors in real life, I hope that the rest of the renovation match their quality.
