Ellen lives a few streets over and needed a new door... as most folks know, the original doors are hollow-core 1-3/8 interior doors — not really suited for exterior use... especially 50+ years of exterior use.
She has the same model as we do (and the same as Chris/Sara and Lindsey/Jeff and Chris/Laura, Glen/Molly and Judith/David...) so it was a fairly familiar fit. However, in a past repair, someone had jacked up the framing a good bit which necessitated a good bit more repair work around the jamb, including sawing out the old bore-locations and replacing with new redwood... (tip: this is how it's s'posed to be done... leave the Bondo at home, kids).
Ellen also opted for both the top and bottom plates. As an avid cyclist (and grandmother of rowdy kids), protection at the bottom corner from kicks and tires will be nice.
She likes it so much, she's started to dress like it. ;)
... and there's a good bit more landscaping and construction going on around the house, too.
