Have You Ever Remodeled?
We bought our home almost 8 years ago, new. It had the standard, run of the mill sliding glass doors. After all this time, we felt it was time to change. That in and of it's shelf was a challenge. At first, I wanted French Doors. I was set on that, the kind that have screens and windows on the sides of the doors.
When the salesperson asked me which way I wanted the door to open, I must have looked at him like he had grown another eye!!
What do you mean which way??? He asked me, inside or out....HUH!!??
Inside would not work because the door would swing into a vintage pew bench we picked up in England.
Outside wouldn't work because the patio table is on the left hand side of the doors. I would have to step out, close the door and then proceed...waaay too much work there.
I thought and thought about this question. I thought about it for literally months. Nothing was getting done.
I finally said, "french doors are not for me." I changed my mind completely, and never looked back.
Instead of the french doors, we got beautiful maple wood Andersen sliding doors. It was the right decision for our lifestyle. The right choice had been made.
Now on with the work, and I might add, the scary part.
We are held up a couple of days waiting for the security company to come in and reset the sensors......so, I look at this every day.......
