Default Door frame repair

The house was built about 110yrs ago to be an office building to a local saw that was driven by an steam engine. Sometimes in the 60's the back veranda doors were changed to something that reminds me of garage doors. The building is next to a Port so with our climate at the shore without allmost any maintanence/repair jobs done in 40+ yrs ...youll guess the rest of the story.
The finish is tar that faces down wars, lindsea oil paint wit zink as the first layer and second and third is titan zinck lindseadoil paint
The frame is ready. Now its time to get the new old doors remodeled to fit the frame and instal the hindges and everything else

In California we have only a few old buildings, so we don't do a lot of rehabilitation projects. Are you going to make this building ready to use again? That would be a huge project.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Log houses with tin roof and high base/corner stones and ground conteining mostly sand /gravel makes houses last longer even the details start to rot. Allso the lindsead oil paint prevents the wood from rottening.
The house is a sort of comunity center with rooms upstairs with 2 family inhabiting it and the activity at the first floor.
I agree with you Tom that it would be nice if they could have afford to repair the whole house! For examle there is over 260 window frames...
I would have a day job for atleast two yrs. Unfortunently they lack the income.
I have a contract with them to restore 14 of the most damaged outer window frames plus 2x2 doors that is double doors and the door frames.
Sorry for the tilted pics. My phone shows them all as in right position...

If this is very strange to you would you still like to see the progress of this and maby others too?

The repairing of the frame took ages. If I wouldnt have had a sick dog I would have been abel to do longer days. Now it took 5weeks 👎
The job was quite complicated. Something had to Be done from underside and with my figure.. I couldnt fit the hatch to get my self there Im 6'11"/210cm. My customer went there and did what had to be done. I would say that planing and fiting took doubled or tripled so much Time as what sawing and routing took.
A very time consuming job with very many checkings
