A couple of months ago we decided that it was time to start replacing all the doors in the house.
Well, it was actually mostly me making that decision.
It started when we needed to replace 2 of the doors during the basement remodel - the old ones didn't work (warped frames), and the doors themselves were in pitiful shape. What's funny - one of the doors was made out of plastic.
I kid you not. Brown plastic made to resemble wood.
And the other? It had graffiti on it. Classy, Charlie. Classy.
So out they went. And we spent a frustrating few days trying to get the new pre-hung doors into the wall correctly. The wildly roller-coaster-like-unlevel-floor didn't really help much, either.
But eventually we got them in, and love them!
Of course, there were still 5 doors upstairs that needed to be replaced now, too. Ever notice when you upgrade/change one thing, you gotta change everything?
And so it went. This time the doors were a little easier (since we weren't replacing the whole frame), except for one big thing:
But eventually, we got them hung.
And shiny new handles installed.
And even though the trim, walls, and the doors themselves need to be painted, not to mention quarter round added to the floors, they still make quite a large difference.
As in, this is 2010, not 1968.
What do you guys think about them? We think they're a huge improvement, and we love that they actually work! Of course, to date we've only replaced 3 out of 5, but hey - we're getting there.
