Okay, so it’s been a long time since I updated. My apologies to everyone who has been asking for new pictures of the house. I have a ton of photos, just haven’t had the energy or desire to sit and format them all for the blog in the evenings. My goal this week is to get some new photos up every day for a few days in a row, that should catch everyone up on some of the progress of the house. A lot of exciting things have happened. Today we’ll be looking at the newest project, the ladytheorist’s new front doors.
Tam found some fabulous new front doors at ReStore (a wonderful place I’ve mentioned before in this space). These are double paned, Low E glass, Pella French Doors with a third, decorative pane in the middle.
We had wanted to move the front door anyway. The old front door was on the south side of the house, the new doors will go in on the east side.
First we had to cut a big hole in the house, that’s Don’s favorite part of the job:
Man that’s a big hole, I was worried for a bit there. Thought we mismeasured.
But we finally got them in, and they look good. All those windows and the doors look in on Tam’s room (office, sunroom, greenhouse). She’s going to be blind when the morning sun hits them.
Closer up, you can see some of the faint color that’s in the glass, really adds that final touch to them in person:
We also got the original front door tore out and the last two windows put in the room that day, but I don’t have exterior pictures yet. It was dark by the time we finished up the windows. That corner of the house just looks radically different now. Hopefully those will be pictures I take and get up this week!
