I'm 29 and reasonably intelligent, know how things work but haven't done everything hands on, just theoretical(?). Like to work with my hands and build things/fix things. 6'6" and 285lbs so not built so much for crawl spaces or attics, however.
Research some companies that tend to stay busy. Be willing to be a laborer to start.

Why isn't it fully inserted in the case?

Ah. Makes sense, and I guess you don't want to change out the case.

Given that the location is around moisture, I'd look at some PVC trim. You could screw together a simple frame to cover the gap, or possibly rip some to cover the entire area between the face and the wall.

My HOA won't let me change out the case without paying an assessment fee and getting approval. In my opinion it's much more hassle than it's worth.






Did a quickie trim job with some scrap wood. Came out okay for maybe 10 minutes worth of work.

I'm probably going to go to the lumber yard and pick up 6" trim which will go all the way to the wall. I may also use aluminum vent tape to seal off the gap underneath.

Next step: water damage repair ha.

Door Casing looks awesome! I have to case an entry way that I widened when I bought the house between the living room and kitchen - wish I had the tools and know-how to make the trim. Probably going to just get some 1X6 pieces from HD and cut them to length.

Very Jealous.

Take your time and trim a little off until they fit , you might suprise yourself , 1/2 the battle is allowing yourself the time to get it perfect

It's a 2'6" door , the pic is a bit of an optical illusion , the ceiling height in that end of the house is 7'6" , I'm shooting the pic through another doorway and it's close to the corner so the door looks tall and skinny

Hey Oz, as usual, looks great.

How do you attach the trim to the wall? Is that brad/trim nails I see in the top piece? If so, are they countersunk and do you plan on filling the holes?
