More doors

There are more than 30 doors inside Emerald Hill, not counting the four doors that open to the outside of the house.

Shane and Peter are quickly mounting all the interior doors into place, shimming them plumb and level.

Above, Shane and Peter have turned the family room into a workshop — stacked with lumber, tools, sawhorses, glue, packages of shims, boxes of nails. And, on the floor at center front of photo, they have unboxed the attic ladder.

Patrick tests the door to Steven's office for plumb -- and the reveal between the door and the doorjamb.

Here's the attic ladder, carried upstairs to the utility room, prepped to install into the ceiling hatch.

Patrick checks a closet door in Jadin's bedroom after tacking the frame into place. Using the level he checks for plumb. Several times, he knocks the wood of the doorjamb with his knuckles to tap the wood a fraction of an inch.

After nailing into position the door to the master bath, Patrick is the first person to swing the door open and step through. To get to this point, he has shimmed the door on both sides. It took stacks of shims, because the doorway was framed with extra space. As a result, there are large gaps on each side of the door between the jamb and the wall framing -- almost 3/4 of an inch. Patrick explains he will have to toenail the casing into place to cover the gap, carefully, to create the proper reveal.
