As regulars on this group know (!), I've moved in with mom and as a
Sandwich Generation kid (formerly known as Baby Boomer) have like a
trillion home improvement projects on my hands.
Last summer, I put up that rubber-flanged vinyl molding around a garage
door completely bare. The fact the door is completely bare wouldn't
have been such a problem if the garage wasn't in her/our basement!
(She was paying electric bills of $400+ a month here in the mountains.)
Anyway, while this molding helped somewhat, a much greater source of
wind--yes, wind--is the fact that the poured concrete "garage" (read
"cellar") floor is out of level. I've been using throw rugs to chink
up the place where the floor drops.
Aside from replacing the entire door--which should have been replaced
years ago--but now can't be because she has other more urgent home
repair issues--and won't sell the d*@m house--even though we were just
through one wicked ice storm-- I say aside from replacing the entire
door, can anyone come up with ideas of how to handle this unevenness in
a cosmetically acceptable way?
We look like unfortunate Bosnians, with crappy carpets inside and out.
(TIA, yeah, I know!)
