comment Rip old door in half?
Thanks. Wouldn't the drilling be through the depth of the door (1.5" or so) not through the height (80")? Would a plunge router work in place of a drill to make the dowel holes?

comment How do you choose when to use oil vs latex paint?
I was mostly curious to hear if there were any advantages to oil at all. The discussion came up over the durability of oil vs latex on wood trim. One person argued oil was more durable for this application, in their experience. Another argued in his experience that was no longer true.

comment What do I do with a leaky roof in the middle of January?
If you absolutely have to wait then a good sized concrete mixing basin may keep the drips from doing further damage to the ceiling.

Cool technique. Thanks. We decided to use string measured to the floor to find the low point. Found that the joists were out of level by up to two inches. Would have been a lit of shimming. For this reason and to avoid some electrical wires running through the joists we ran 2x4s along the lenths of the joists to reach the low line (string to the rescue again). Thanks again.
