Just bought a house and now I get to enjoy the experience of moving in the dead of winter. Big heavy tables and steel bedframes are always a joy to carry around outside when it is -10F.
Anyways.... This house has three ill-fitting doors on it (yeah, bummer). I'm going to do my best to weatherstrip the entry door, and come spring it will be replaced anyways. For the other two, I see no need for anyone to come in or out of them for awhile, so I'm inclined just to tape them shut. I had some blue "painter's tape" lying around and used that, but of course it doesn't seem to stay up for very long.
Anyone else do this? What's the best tape to use that won't leave a gooey gummy mess all over the wooden door(s) and trim? I know that WD-40 would take the gumminess off but I bet it would hose up the paint, and make that area impossible to paint again.
Thanks for any and all suggestions.
A bonus question: Who do you call to have a black iron gas line "tee'd" and brought up into another room? Heating and A/C folks? A plumber? General contractor? Uncle Larry?
