How A-door-able

Three sides of the house have been torn apart and put back together with OSB, foam board, house wrap and new windows. 
The front of the house has a new entry door! 

We still have a window to install on the left side.

The front concrete porch/ stoop had to be demolished to make repairs.  It wasn't attached to the house so there was a gap between the porch and the house that allowed water to seep down inside and damage one of the main support beams.
A little before and "work in progress" shot.

We are removing the window above the door completely.
 There is only a cubby attic space up there.

The hubs and I are still trying to decide on a porch roof.  That steep gable makes it a bit tricky.  We don't want a porch roof to cover up our new door.  We are planning on a deck porch with railing.  But we're not quite sure what we are going to do.  We have a couple of ideas in mind.  We just need to come up with the final plan!



  1. Cute cute cute! I love it. You are making it look even more cottage-like.

  2. What an improvement even with just foam board! LOL

  3. What color is this new door going to be?

    1. Undecided right now. Hubs asked me not to do anything "crazy". We both kind of like the look of a black door on a white house. I need to see the porch on the house before I can decide.
