(I know that I should have an 'after' photo of the doors open...I'll get around to it when it's all finished.)
What started out as just replacing the windows with doors, became a slightly bigger job when we decided to add a small deck rather than just a step. Once the door was in it was obvious that a continuous floor level was what was needed.
Can't wait to finish it off!
Any suggestions on plants/pots/ideas etc gratefully received...
Just to finish off the whole update - another change occurring just off the dining area.
Again, some paintwork to be completed, but already we are getting the full benefit during this week's 30 degree heatwave that has signalled the start of Spring here!
These are not new doors just the old ones recycled.
The plans of the house has them drawn in as windows but the original owners must have changed their mind at some point and decided on doors. However, the doors were sliding ones, with one door only opening about a third of the way.
Our very clever joiner managed to chop a bit off here, add a bit there and produced exactly what we wanted. He then built a huge step out that extends way past the width of the doors that doubles up as a bit of a bench seat.
We had to have them opening in as the door from the laundry is just to the right. I actually quite like them opening in as it makes a picture feature of the outside.
School holidays here, so lots of exciting things planned.
Loving it all!
