Replacing Doors

     All the interior doors were those old hollow cheap-o doors that were now fifty years old.  There were four going down the hallway to bedrooms and bathroom. The other was in the kitchen leading to the basement and entrance back door.
     We went to Keim Lumber, Charm, OH, and brought home five new solid core, four-paneled white primed doors. 
     After they were hung I painted them with three coats of Benjamin Moore Advance Satin finish paint. White in the hallway, White Dove on the kitchen door. I used a Wooster Micro-plush 5/16" roller.  Absolutely love those Micro-Plush roller covers. The paint dries like it is sprayed on. So smooth.

Prior to hanging doors Paul used a template and router to recess hinges.
