My House Needs Help!
The first project I want to undertake is one I feel I need to do out of necessity. We need new back doors!
Right now we have two sliding glass doors that lead onto our back porch- one from the kitchen (hidden by the awning) and one from the master bedroom (seen in the picture). Only, they are old, rusted, and are very difficult to open. The one in the master bedroom comes off its tracks constantly and I can just see if falling off and shattering into a million pieces! So I'd like to fix them before this happens.
Here are the options:
-Nice French Doors. Maybe try to find a set that reflect the period of the house?
-French Doors with Doggy Door. We have three dogs... enough said!
-New Sliding Glass Doors. Lighter and with screens this time, so we can keep them open when it's warm out!
If you were me, which would you choose and why? I'd really love to hear your feedback.
Also, does anyone know what I can do with the old doors? The tracks are spent, I don't think they can be repaired. But the door themselves are still in relatively good condition, just way too heavy for our home. Can I donate to Habitat for Humanity or another organization?
And once that's done we can finally paint the back and re-finish the deck!
