When I'm not playing disc golf or turning bowls in the shop, I'm a professional carpenter who specializes in window and door installation. A few days ago, I accepted a two-day job to build out a new bathroom door in a condo in Breckenridge, Colorado. It's a small ski resort town that Steph (@geke) and I sometimes visit on a day trip, and when the management company that owns the condo said we could stay there for free, we decided to make a mini vacation out of it.
Because there wasn't an existing opening in the condo's bathroom, I built a custom jamb and hung a Home Depot door on it; all that work was done here in my home shop. Once it was put together, I loaded it up along with my tools and we set out for a pretty drive through the mountains.

And voila! A trimmed door.
This bathroom finally offers some privacy!
After that, Steph (@geke) and I enjoyed some cocktails and a great meal at Michael's Italian Restaurant in downtown Breck. I plan to use some of these photos on my work website, HaneDaneCraft.com, and thanks for coming along with us on this short trip!
