That looks like a great job on a normal door !
Hah, thanks! A "great job" might have been using that cement to bond the mitre joints. I actually remembered I wanted to do that only after I drove in a couple nails and already secured it to the top piece. Definitely not worth the work prying off, plus it would have silicone smeared behind it. Then I rationalized that the big garage door has no such treatment with its brickmould and that put my mind at ease.
Beauti Tone Is a Home Hardware brand paint up here and it is really good as well.I may have to start using it more again as the price has stayed more reasonable. Ben Moore is close to $80 /gal.
$80 is *INSANE* for a can of paint. It better have gold flake in it. lol

Check-out at Lumberjack was stopping at the gate and paying there. You drive into the yard, load whatever you needed from the stack whence it came, then payed at the guard shack. They even had yard dudes to help find/load materials if you needed it. It was SUPER simple and saved so much time over having to go into the store 3 times to make a purchase. While the big box's idea of indoor storage of the lumber is nice, having to load a cart, shove it through the store, wind it out the cashier corral, then load into the truck is a huge PITA! I hate it every time I have to do it, especially "after hours" when the main lumber door cashier is no longer open.

Ya $80 Can. So that's about maybe 60 US.

I don't know about that, about 6 years ago I did a complete interior repaint, Sherwin Williams paint was nearly $70 a gallon for low VOC interior paint. I don't care if it's Canukistanian or Americanese frog skins, that's a lot of frog skins!

That's the best case scenario right there. In and out.

Menards guys are pretty helpful when you can find them. That's the rub with Menards.

Yeah it totally blows. When you're getting building materials you have the least amount of patience to deal with the store. Gotta keep that mental flow going with your mind on your project and getting it done, and there are only so many hours in a day.

Ben Moore is fine paint but I bet it's overrated. They have a niche market.
