What was aggravating but humorous (at least a few days later when we can look back at it) was that it rained almost the entire day. My Charles had to do all of his cutting in between bursts. He succeeded, even when we had a brief power-outage due to lightning, in building and installing a new header above the door jam. As you can see, this is what a header should look like.
Next step, the moment of truth -- will our door fit or has it been warped?
