One project that was on my list was replacing the old front door in the oldest part of the house, built in 1790, by all accounts.
It was very drafty, and I wanted some more light in the room. I splurged a bit, and bought a beautiful fiberglass door with a lot of glass. I also bought a full length glass storm door.
Yesterday, they were installed. It is never uneventful, making changes in an old house. What I love is imagining it, then seeing it happen.
I love it.
Today I was there early, cleaning up the mess, and moving things around the way I want them.
You can see how much light the new door lets in.
This wall is going to be my new computer/check out station. I may leave the wall cupboard there. I haven't quite figured it all out yet, but this is all part of planning the move to actually live there. And we need a living room.
It's all coming together quite nicely.
And this was on a stormy, gray day.
This front room used to be my retail space. What I realized is that since my business is mostly online, I am wasting this great room, when I could be enjoying it.
So the retail is now being reworked in the rather large, center hallway, a space not very useful for much else.
Today was snowy, rainy, gray, and cold.
And by 2pm, it was a 10 on the headache scale.
But I am determined not to hate winter.
There must be something about it that I can love.
I'll let you know when I locate it.
