Re: Longest Unfinished Project
In 1970, my parents moved into the house where I was born & grew up. At the time they moved in, the front doorknob was broken. Oh, it worked fine if you turned it BEFORE you pulled the door open, but if you pulled before you turned, the knob would come off in your hand. (You'd be surprised how many people pull and then turn.) We always got great enjoyment watching guests turn ashen as they thought they broke our doorknob.
Nearly 40 years later, my brother and his family now live in the house. The doorknob is still broken.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
