Well bugger all.
First the Good News. I took a good look at the grout work and it's all solid; I like it. There are a couple of spots I'd redo if I was motivated but they're all WAY UP THERE over the arch of the door; nobody will even be able to see them from the porch. So they're good.
I need to start taking measurements for the bottom half of the door and consider how I'm going to finish that bit off. I'm pondering some type of pillar, or shallow extrusion or pilaster
. Given the slight slant of the door arch itself I might buy a larger single board and cut it down to size. Not really sure; I'll have to ponder it.
Either way that leads to the Bad News. A very close friend of mine has passed away unexpectedly, so I'll have to run back to Missouri to give him a proper sendoff. Unfortunately that probably means this will delay furtherance of the door work for a week, though at least I have to spend some time gathering options anyway.
