Good Customer Service Wins
Of the 5 door and window distributors that I called, 3 of them called me back. 2 of those 3 were fairly close to where I live but unfortunately, their customer service was poor. They either didn't return specific questions regarding the doors, or just took too long in calling back. So, I finally got the door and windows ordered through Parr Lumber up on Killingsworth and MLK. They'll even deliver to the house, so the whole locality thing didn't even come into play.
As for the current project I'm working on, the linoleum removal, it hasn't been as boring as I thought. I have 2 hours into it so far, and would expect a good 12 hours left. The process is to first try with a wonder bar that is great with removing the somewhat loose tiles. If that doesn't work, I throw a wet towel over the tile, and heat it up with an iron. Then use a putty knife to scrape the top of the tile off. Later, I'll have to go back over those sticky tiles with adhesive remover.
I expect my arms to be massively huge when it's all said and done.
Here's where I'm at as of 9pm Monday the 3rd:
