Day Nine: Door Hinges

I now have hinges on my door that leads from the kitchen to the garage. Yay! Now we can keep the heat in the house and not in the garage. I mean my truck likes being kept nice and toasty but I think I like being toasty instead.

The before: no door going from the kitchen to the garage.

Lining the door up.

Removing old hinges. (He loves his new drill that I got him for Christmas, I love it too.)

We decided that it would be easier to put the hinges on the door first since the door weighs a ton and the hinges couldn't come apart.


At this point Big-D is holding up a very heavy door waiting for me to put the screws in and I am off taking pictures of him holding up the very heavy door.

After moving the door up and down several times to get so that door would line up just right we finally got it in place so that the door would close completely.

The after: Look at the pretty door. Don't worry Big-D will get the door knob on at a later date; we wrestled that door around for three hours and both exhausted and wanted to go to bed.

Look at that pretty new hinge.

One thing down on the to do list; so many more things to do.
Over and out,
A Engineer in the Kitchen


  1. Now only to replace 5 more doors but those weren't something that had to be done right away.
