Disassembling and Rebuilding a Triang Stockbroker

on
New Front Door

With my new style Half Stockbroker, the front door is through the porch into the kitchen. The door was not fitted so I don’t have a picture or what it was like originally. It now has a nice coat of dark green paint.

As with all the hinges, they had a good coat of various paints, I wanted to use as many original parts as I can. So out came my trusty Dremmel fitted with a wire brush wheel I got to work. Some of them were also slightly bent so had to be tapped gently with a hammer to put them back into shape.

Luckily the door had all its original door furniture, door knocker, letter box and door knob. Being a little dull with age, out came the Dremmel again.

I am really pleased with how these came up, and are now ready to fit on the door.

I used the orininal nails to fit the letter box back into place.

      I keep getting that feeling, why did I start this. Then I think one day it will be a dolls house again. As for the windows 15 in all, but at least they are complete if a little rusty.
