Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've got a problem with our house. The side door that goes in to the garage for the last few months is incredibly difficult to open and shut. My wife can't do it. I can do it, but I have to very forcibly throw my weight and shoulder in to it. We just got our garage door fixed and in working order again so it would be really nice if we could put the car in the garage and then come in through the side door like we are meant to do.
I think it's hard to open and shut due to humidity and the wood expanding in the door. I can't say for certain as I'm not a big handyman or anything like that, but it is quite annoying and this is something I'd like to fix. You can look at the inside of the door frame and see where people in the past have had a similar issue and that metal lining (really not sure what it is called, but it runs up and down the door and is nailed to the inside of the frame where the door closes) is bent up in a few places. I've tested it and I'm pretty sure it's not getting caught on any of that metal stuff because when we first moved in, we didn't have this issue with the door. It's swelled up so bad that we can't even get the deadbolt to go all the way in to the wood.
Anyone have some experience with an issue like this and can give me some good advice on how to fix it? Something that is preferably easy and not very cost intensive. I don't have a garage with a ton of tools just sitting around waiting for me to use or anything like that.
