Today was one of those really rewarding days in home designing and constructing. The garage doors were installed and I absolutely love them!! What a relief! I agonized so much over the color, style, windows, etc. But I think the end result is exactly what I was going for-doors that don't stand out or draw attention to themselves but instead blend in with the house's style and color. Wood doors would've made a nice statement, if they were in our budget, but these work great. They also let in a lot of light, and operate quietly and smoothly.
While Marty put the door handle and deadbolt on the basement door after work, I sat on a plastic lawn chair reading in the bay window, with the small recessed light overhead giving off just the right amount of light to read by. It was a little chilly, but we brought over 5 space heaters to dry out the place for the floors to be put in, so I just propped my legs up over the heater to stay warm. The house is beginning to feel like a home. I can't describe the excitement I felt as we opened and closed our garage doors with our little remotes, or turned on and off lights. Each day we can see ourselves getting closer and closer to moving in. I've already been looking for a dining set so we can have a bunch of people over for dinner and games.
