It takes about 4-6 months for my fingernails to grow from cuticle to the end. I know this because I have smashed my nails more times than I can count and counted the days until the evidence was gone. That brings me to this picture.
As you can see, the blood damage on my right thumb is almost gone. This is important for one reason. It happened while Dad and KJo and I were framing in the barn door to prepare to remove the sliding doors and install an overhead door.
I smashed it right next to the cuticle the first week of April, the same week I ordered the overhead door. The picture above was on August 16. The nail damage is nearly gone four full months later, the same time the garage door finally arrived and was installed.
That is a very good thing!
I just happened to take some pictures while it was going up.
The 39 year old sliding doors.
Each of these doors is seven feet wide and fourteen feet tall. I will remove the red metal and use it around the new door frame and to cover some windows that I am eliminating in the barn.
The door is insulated, but amazingly light. You can see in the picture below that it needs metal and trim on the outside. I have the old metal and I have trim, but I ran out of time. It is a job for another day.
I purchased the heavy duty opener. It is unusually quiet and smooth operating.
Thank you for spending a few moments with us.
