Doors and Tiles

We had an appointment with a Geico insurance adjuster in Mount Dora at 0905.  This was to fix the minor damage to the rear end of the car when the guy ran into the back of it at a traffic light in Sevierville, Tennessee on May 11.  We stopped at the house on our way out.

This truck was backed up to the garage.

This smiling man was unloading the truck and placing the doors in the garage.


He also brought door trim and base boards.

We headed on to Mount Dora.  The experience with the Geico adjuster was very good and they already had a rental car there for us.  We had but to sign papers for the body shop, the insurance company, and the car rental company and we were on our way.  Then we turned around and went back for our Sun Pass (electronic toll payer for the car windshield).  Andy wanted to go to Costco to restock our Dr. Pepper supply.  Just down the road a bit from the body shop, we saw a Mellow Mushroom!  A pizza is in our near future.  It took a long time to get to Costco, about twice as long as we had expected.

We got back to the house in the early afternoon and heard sawing as we were walking up to the front door.  We had three door men working inside.  They had the saw set up in the family room.

They were almost done; doors were hanging just about everywhere.

One man was trimming the door to the master bath.

Another was installing the pull-down steps in the garage.  There is a small storage space up there.  I suppose it would be a place for Christmas decorations if they could take the summer heat up there.

A large truck pulled up in the circle.  It took me a minute to figure out that it was tile.  (I read it on the driver’s door.)

The man had a very cool forklift. That’s our white rental car in the background.

He put one pallet full of tiles inside the garage and, then, shoved it back further with another pallet full.

That fork was maneuverable.  He could move it up, down, left, right, in, out, and even tilt it a bit.

That’s a lot of tiles.

The door installers left without installing the linen closet door for the master bath.  I think they just called it a day to get out of the way of the tile delivery man. Else, it could have been the wrong size.

A flock of ibis was ambling across the grass in back of the house.  I noticed one good-looking juvenile.

      I am so envious. I didn’t get to spend enough time with them this year. Y’all have fun!
