Never even thought about the metal skin on the outside of the door. My wife got some special primer thats supposedly designed to make paint stick to tough surfaces. We'll try that and repaint the metal door. The previous paint you could literally peel right off. I would still like to see it go away. Anyway the baseboard is all cut to length and mitered and dadoed with the first coat of stain applied. I worked one of my days off so I still haven't done anything with the floor yet. Just going to build a laminated beam and place it under the floor joist where the radiator is going. Thanks for the suggestions. Mike A. I didn't even think about shilac. Probably would have been a better choice. This was one of those spur of the moment projects. Matt

Just got home from work 0315 and this is what the wife was doing. I love my wife. She's using soy-gel to strip the paint. What a awesome product. Well she can stay up I'm going to bed. Matt

Ah!!!!!!!!!! The saga continues. So proud of myself. Got the 100+ year old fittings out without destroying anything. Good thing for Mr. Oxy and Mr. Acetylene and a good chisel. As for the breezeway my wife decided to strip all the trim and we found some more problems. Namely the window trim. Looks like one of the previous owners drywalled right over the whole wall. They replaced the door trim with some original trim and some reproduction, but drywalled over the original window trim. They didn't even use a real window sill. Mine assumption that the breezeway was never finished is wrong. Looks like it was plastered. Oh well bck to work. Matt
