comment Replacing Exterior Back Door
Some other things to consider, mortising in the hinges can be difficult for a novice, the original casing may no longer be square and the original door may not be a standard size.

comment Is there anything that I need to look out for when buying an induction cooktop?
One thing I was cautioned about, storage above the cooktop. A can of soup falling out of the cabinet above can damage the glass top. A replacement glass can cost almost as much as a new cooktop.
