Come And Knock On Our Door(s)!

Just a few posts ago Readers I was whining about how slow progress was, and then all at once we progressed!
I owe a HUGE Thank You to Friend Kyle, he and his father took my two french doors, framed them, hung them, installed the dead bolt, and installed the doors into the front wall of Pontipee Hall! I have dreamed of the day this part of the project was complete, and its wonderful to finally have a door next to the doorbell!
It makes a WORLD of difference in the new part of the house. The doors are basically five feet of window that face Southwest and gives us a view of the lake, the living room is starting to look like a room vs a giant wooden crate!  Before with no windows or doors the addition was just dark, save for the glow from the sputnik chandelier, now sunlight floods the room. I love sunlight!  I cant wait to save the funds install the nine foot window on the West wall over those two blue chairs. It will be like a solarium!
The proper steps to the door need to be built, two screen doors need to be added, along with an overhang awning over the doors but this will work for now, and just in time for our big Spring Dance too!
(I love standing out in the yard looking in!)

Looking good, we had a master bedroom that looked like that for over a year.

The doors look great! You're going to have to get some shades to put on them to keep prying eyes out when you aren't there.

All that great light coming in now! I love French doors and I remember trying (and eventually succeeding) hanging those!
This addition will be so full of light when the other window is put in. Getting to resemble the look of a resort!!

You can enhance the stylish appeal of the door by installing a residential awning. Based on the size of the door, you can install a stylish fabric awning to cover the entrance, and keep the area cool and shaded.

You must’ve been really happy because you already have the French door you’re dreaming of! :D It looks great. It’s good also that you didn’t need to hire someone to do the work for you. Your friend and his father were really kind to help you with your dream project. How was the feeling standing there and gazing through your French door? It must’ve been awesome for you! :D

I can only imagine how happy you were to finally have that French door! Kyle and his father did a great job in installing them, like they were professionals. You can always put decors on your French door to add to its charm.
