The interior trim work is now underway. It is a bit tedious requiring several processes to arrive at the finished product. Unplumb walls around two door frames are making a need for some special wood shims that also need to be stained. The doors have to be plumb to open and close correctly. What happens is the frame ends up not being flush with the drywall and big gaps are showing up. The gaps need filling.
Even before the trim can go on around the doors, the door frames need to be cleaned and painted. It is always easier to paint before another layer is added that needs to be painted around.
So I painted the bathroom door frame white like someone wanted. They wanted the bathroom door to be white because the front and back doors are white. They are white now anyway. Now the new white door frame has black fingerprints on it from attaching the trim.
But I wonder, should this door be painted another color? What do you think ? Yes or no? If yes what color? There's another poll in the right sidebar.

I may be just a bit cranky and tired. All the processes yet to come are rolling around in my head and making me feel a bit overwhelmed and that is just ridiculous at this point. I'm almost done big picture wise.
Lately I have also been busy raking acres of leaves and that is the likely cause of being a bit tired. There are people who do not like leaves on top of their clean mulch. I get paid to move them elsewhere. This garden alone approaches a full acre top to bottom and is surrounded on all sides by forest.
There are far too many leaves to effectively blow them away. A five foot swipe with a rake creates a pile too big to really blow. Being wet doesn't help either. So I rake big piles, gather them in a sheet and dump them back in the forest. The blower comes out for the final attempts at spic and span.
In between leaf rearrangement and fall cleanup of shrubs and perennials for the clients I cut, sand and stain wood trim starting with the difficult doors. It will get easier with the windows, baseboards and ceiling trim.
This side of the door can stay white. Or I should say this side of the door can be painted white. Yes it needs to be painted. My perfectionism requires all dings, dents and imperfections to be well hidden. I have to wear glasses to see what I am doing so I see every little imperfection during the building process. Once it is all put together I don't need glasses to walk around. Then it will all fade away into perfection.
Like a perfect sunset. There must be infinite ways for a sunset to be perfect.
There are bound to be few ways to make the trim work perfect enough for eyes without glasses.
