The Garage Doors Are In

We have a two car garage! No more walking across the yard in 3 feet of snow to get to shed/detached garage.

They were installed Monday:

Before:

After:

Never mind the fugly awnings. They used to attach where the new door is so we need to figure out a way to hang them back up without putting holes in our expensive new trim.

Before:

After:

They are so beautiful. The wood grain adds so much depth and texture where there was previously a white box.

Both Flannel Man and I think the new doors visually look bigger than the old white one. For now they don’t really go that great with the old gray siding but someday we’ll have tan rock and light olive siding so they’ll look even better then. Aw someday…but for now we’re enjoying our first renovation to make a big visual impact.

Stay tuned on a post about cutting in the second garage door.

    I did not know they made garage doors with the wood grain. They really do look nice, and add value to your home.
