Anyway I thought I'd do a few posts on some of the projects I worked on to remind myself of what I got accomplished.
|The Old Door|
One Friday night last November, as I sat watching Netflix, someone solved my problem: they kicked in the door. I guess they realized someone was home because they immediately ran off. The door was in bad shape, but I covered the big hole with plywood on both sides and the next day I started shopping for a new door. Decisions, decisions! Wood, steel or fiberglass? Left or right inswing? Painted or primed? What kind of handle? What kind of deadbolt? Hardware finish? Doorbell button? How to install it?
|The New Door|
I really like my front door now. I have a different pot next to it now, but so far I haven't been able to keep anything I've planted alive. I was hoping to grow something tall and green but he summer heat just fried everything I planted. Someday I'm going to remove that weird pipe sticking out of the top of my porch light. It connects to an electrical outlet and was installed by the previous owners. I'm pretty sure it's not up to electrical code. (Maybe next year...)
