The door of perception is now wide open

It's been awhile since I posted a blog entry. We've been working on a couple of good size projects. Spring this year in Seattle/Tacoma has been unusually cold, rainy and cloudy. Yes, these are all things this area are known for, but it's normally not this bad. We've managed to dart outside between rain storms to finish up a few things.

New Back Door

This has been on our list since we moved in, and it's nearly done. We had a solid plate metal door (think dark and ugly), which we replaced with a nice nine square craftsman style door that matches our french doors and our front door (and actually seals). This door, like most everything else in our house, was purchased from Second Use as salvaged material.

One small victory for doorkind. If the rain ever stops (please tell me it will), then we'll be able to paint and finish up this project.

Oh, what a great find! I hope when it comes time for me to replace the front door on my foursquare, I'll be able to find something as nice at my local reuse center.
