The Doors

Since last I posted, the snow has melted, the sun has shone and work has been progressing. A brief delay was caused when the doors were not ready for stucco. Builder Jeff wanted the jams in place so the earthen plaster/lime wash would curve around the doors. We aren't using any molding or baseboards (except in the closets where there is drywall and not a clean line between wall and floor). I did order them a bit late and the bad winter everywhere delayed shipments, but they arrived and Nicholas was put on the task of finishing them. Being an experienced woodworker, this took him half the time it would have taken me. We are using cherry doors upstairs and fir doors downstairs. This was definitely a cost issue. The doors are from Koch and supposedly "greener" then normal doors.
