In December I made a trip up to the Habitat Restore near Portsmouth, NH, and picked up three doors for the tiny house.* Here are two of them. During the coldest and snowiest New England winter in decades (we still have 3 feet of snow in our yard) I was glad I had a few inside projects I could complete!
My door openings, in order to maximize my loft room, were cut down a few inches and thus I was able to use the excess to fill door knob holes, hardware cavities and scars.
The non toxic finish I like to use is from EcoPaints; they have a variety of air pure, exterior products, varnishes and stains.
It was a challenge to sand, repair, paint and varnish my doors and windows in the small 3′ x 6′ area in the basement with a floor that floods every time it snow or rains. But I stuck with it. As soon as warmer weather and the melting of 3 feet of snow is upon us, out they go…
*My large bay window found by the roadside broke, so the last large window in the back had to be custom ordered to fit the rough opening all ready in the Silver Bullet. Otherwise, the rest are reclaimed.
