In Renovations

New backdoor has arrived!

After renting the Lowes van last night we got the new back door into the house. When we install it, is debatable. 🙂 For now, it sits with us in the kitchen.

Our existing back door is awful. I’m resisting posting a picture until we have a before and after. But for those who have been over, know how much we hate it.

The background on the back door is that it’s actually an interior door that the previous owners had installed. It was hollow. And that meant – it was COLD in the winter.

After last winter, Aubrey said that he was not going to go through another winter with the existing backdoor, and so this summer, we decided to just order it. We (finally) got it home and now it sits awaiting us to (a) find hardware for the handle and (b) the energy to gear up to tackle installing it.
