Progress slow. Work and sick (or sick of work!) slowed my plans down.
I did however, get solve 2 problems surrounding the door. The automatic door sweep could not extend low enough to make a good seal beneath the door, and the seal would drag on the carpet a bit when opening and closing.
SOLUTION. Had a scrap piece of rubber trim left over from edging out the riser (good lesson NOT to throw out ANYTHING..... "on the next episode of HOARDERS"...).
Cut the rubber trim to fit between the door frame, an overlap to the inside and cut it down just a bit to give a lip at the carpet.
Added some double sided sticky tape (so the rubber strip can be take up if needed)
Worked GREAT. Also with the rubber at the carpet interface, this should help with any carpet snags/wear, etc... Nighttime check of sealing. Bottom... PERFECT, Sides... TBD still have to build and install perimeter door stop with gasket. (Little round blue light above the door is the IR light from the CCTV camera...)
I am also able to adjust the automatic sweep. Now it does not have to come down as far, so it is getting no where near the carpet and hitting the rubber perfectly.
Continued work on the desk and cabinets. Roughed in a piece of Aspen and built up counter-top ends with wood filler to attach laminate end trim.
Also, got my arsenal out of storage to dust them off...
