The Side Door
|There goes the old door.|
The other exterior doors at 173 had windows with a grill, so in keeping with that...and because we like the look, we went with this door from Lowe's. It's not the highest end door, but it met all the requirements, and didn't cost an arm and a leg.
Next was the storm door. Obviously we didn't want cheap, but we also weren't going to spend some of the prices we saw on other doors, so this one won out. The ONE requirement for the storm door was that it have one of those screens that roll down when you lower the window. The back porch storm had that so...
Truth is, I put those pics in here because this blog is first and foremost a way of tracking what's happening at 173. So there's the boring part out of the way.
The guy that installed the doors and threshold came in the first week of February,in the middle of a serious cold snap here in the northeast. Kudos to the dude though - he did the whole thing in a day! Dang! he didn't even where gloves! Anyway, I had to wait til spring to do the caulking and painting, and today was that day!
Not a great picture, but you get the idea. Of course it had to be yellow! Maybe soon I'll do a post on the yellow doors at 173! Have a great day!
