All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible....

Progress Update

We recently installed a new side and front door. We use the side door as our front door. Before we installed the new front door the side door opened but would barely close so we just always used the side. It's become our "main" entrance. The one before just had windows half way up and my dogs would put their paws on it and move the blinds out of the way to see out and it was aggravating because their nails would scratch the door. Now they can just look out without messing up the blinds or scratching the door. My dogs must to be able to look out a window or door because they have been trained to keep watch and bark when something or someone unknown comes into our yard. If I didn't install this door they jump on the back of the living room couch and keep watch like birds and because they know they can't do that they get confused. This door makes everyone happy!

Yes, you see correct. The molding is off. The molding was around the old door and the old door was shorter. We'll fix it later.

The front door still needs to be painted before I post pictures but they are coming soon.

Also, the windows went in last night. Hubby asked that I not post about them because they weren't finished but I couldn't help it! Sorry Babe!

They still need to finish grouting, fixing the concrete and painting the foundation.
