New doors!

Hi Friends,

Things are hopping around here. While we didn’t plan to have the house painted and doors installed within the same week. It happened and I’m glad it did. It gives our house a real transformation.

We started looking at new doors and windows this winter. Our back sliding patio door seal was shot. So much cold air was blowing through the door in the winter it was uncomfortable to sit near it. We talked to a representative at Pella and had some quotes done for the entire house because many of our windows are also drafty and need replacing. The windows are mostly original to the house and are 40 years old.

We got the bid back and *ouch* decided we’d start small. It’s a huge investment and honestly not a super fun one. We knew the back door had to be a priority and then knowing we were going to paint this year we chose to do the front door to work towards changing our homes appearance to the French Provincial style.

Here’s a look at our front door BEFORE:

And here’s a look at the AFTER:

*Hello to my 3 year old model

*We are still waiting on some final trim pieces and another door handle to be delivered. There’s always something…

WOW — The doors are just beautiful. The light into our entryway now is gorgeous. It’s made our entryway like another room in the house. You want to stop and pause and not just walk right through. We are so happy with how these wood doors turned out.

And a view from the front sidewalk below. Still waiting on the shutters to be finished so we can hang them again.

And the inside sliding door below. Not exciting, but a necessity.

Now we wait another month or so for the correct trim to be shipped so the install process can be completed.

Personally, Poppe
