    Installed door. Ben helped me for 30 minutes and said that a carpenter that regularly installs doors can do it in one hour. After door was shimmed and screwed in, I realized it was skewed. Pulled door back out and started over. A dilemma as door is wrong depth. If it’s right outside it’s wrong inside and vice versa. Chose to put it in to match inside.
