We've needed a new front door for a very long time. The door itself was in decent shape, but the trim around the door was rotting. I should have taken a macro picture of it so you could really see. Chris is pretty handy, but decided that installing a front door was beyond even his skill level. So we asked our realtor to recommend a good carpenter and Fran came through.
Inside of the house with the OLD door...
and with the NEW door!

And the NEW door! Doesn't it look sharp? We haven't decided on a color yet and won't worry about it until spring; it's primed so it's weather resistant. And it's just too cold to paint right now. We actually kind of like the white...what do you think?
We decided to skip the storm door this time. I'm glad we did. I think it looks nicer and I have to say, it's REALLY nice not to have a door smack me in the hip whenever I'm unlocking the front door!
We totally love the look of the new front door. Plus, Chris made a new Porsche friend! The carpenter, Mike, is actually quite the Porsche enthusiast and had done lots of work on his. Now maybe with Mike's help Chris can tackle that engine drop this winter... :)
