We Have Doors!

Local carpenter Kelly Phillips (that's Kelly amidst the sawdust to the right) was busy again today installing the doors between the freight room and the hallway.  Very good progress and the doors look great.  Now to finish some of the walls to do justice to the doors.  Kelly is picky about how things go together and had quite a challenge with some of the old door mechanisms.  But the vintage doors, salvaged from the Genesee School, open and close like they were custom fitted to the depot.  This is a great step forward for the building, and is also a boost that restoration is still moving forward.

Pictured above is one of the doors installed, this one leading from the bathroom hallway into the stairway area.  With the doors in place and working well, it is now time to think about the stairway area itself.  After seeing how nice the waiting room floors looked once they were sanded, it would be interesting to see what could be done with the well-worn stairs.
