Even unfinished, the new door looks a million times better, lets in tons of light and it's energy efficient - so no more paying to heat the outdoors (seriously, when standing in front of the old door you could feel the cold air blowing in, not to mention all the rot). Oh, and did I mention how nice it is to have a door that opens and closes easily? It's going to make our DIY patio even more enjoyable next year!
The only downside is that the current view is of our neighbour's parking area. In the spring, we'll install a privacy fence along the back of our property, but until then we may have to figure out a temporary solution (I'm loathe to cover up any of that beautiful, beautiful glass - even temporarily!).
Happy weekend! xo
