This is a picture of the door finally.
I could say that all those bridal joints fitted like a glove.
No one would believe that as I was only given height and width for a stone wall, so the email from the man who fitted it.
Thanks for your email
We’re all well up in the cold frozen Glen.
No snow but low temperatures, beautiful here though.
I’ve done a few pics of the door.
I had to hang it opening out as the path slopes up on the inside!!
Cos of that on the top left there is a gap, but it’s not bad at all.
We could do something about it but that’s for another time.
It looks beautiful mate
I didn’t do the mortices on the uprights on the frame,
just to give myself a bit more of a chance fitting it.
I screwed and plugged the arch and it fitted great.
We used expanding foam on the gap between frame and wall and then trowel
mastic’d on that.
Anyway here they are -
I’m gonna give you a ring as I have a favour to ask.
Ross says hi as well.
