We Really Ought To Know By Now…

…that there’s no such thing as “just hanging a door.” Not in this house, which My Fella is starting to think might actually be “a pile of lumber cobbled together in the rough shape of a house.”

Notice he didn’t say “cleverly disguised as,” because…well, nothing we’ve seen so far qualifies as clever. Not even close.

Here’s a glimpse of what lies beneath…

Door frames, like ogres and onions, have layers.


Meanwhile, the Boxhound does not know what to make of this entire set-up. Neither do we.

Neither do we.

    I had originally considered just hanging the door on the existing frame somehow, rather than completely reframing it. Now I’m not sure what would have happened if I’d done that, because the existing frame wasn’t actually attached to… anything….

    • What exactly holds our house together? Chewing gum and twine? Dark matter? Sorcery? Pure wishful thinking? I wish I knew, except for when I don’t…I’m pretty sure that if we ever uncovered the secret, the place would immediately collapse.
