I feel like I’m always looking at pictures, wanting to post them, but thinking oh, I’ll wait until ______________ happens (fill in your blank) until I make a post.
Whether it’s putting in a new floor, hanging the curtains, painting the trim (ahem, raises hand… you still haven’t seen my dining room table for that reason), I’m sooo guilty of it. I found these old pictures and wanted to post and then thought oh, I’ll wait until we get lights and get them hung before I post those.
I’m not waiting, because once I get the lights in I’ll forget, and then I’ll remember when we’re working on the steps and won’t want to post because the patio isn’t in yet… I know myself… 😉
So once upon a time we had a white house and didn’t have a sliding glass door.
We found a sliding glass door at a factory sale for somewhere around $150-180? I can’t remember… I do remember that this day being rainy, not sunny like in the picture, hmmm
The window was removed and a tarp put in place
and we had a hole in our house. Hi, Doug!
The wall was cut into
and some framing put up where the new wall would be.
Don’t ask me how, I just took the pictures. Sorry if you came here for a real tutorial, hahaha! Maybe you can figure it out..
The dads and a Doug put things into place
And there you have it, a sliding glass door in a day!
We later had new siding installed, here is what it looks like now:
woo hoo! it looks so odd without the door…
Still need to add lights, I’m thinking of those barn style type lights. We’ll be adding in steps hopefully this summer, as well as a brick patio.. Oh and that spot of grass needs to be patched and maybe we’ll get some landscaping in. And while we’re at it, move that over grown tree. OH, and I’d love to paint the concrete foundation thingy and...
Yep, there I go again. Do you do this too? I seriously have a problem with it.
