Installed! Isn't it beautiful?
You can't tell from this picture, but the glass is beveled all around the edges. When we ordered it we ordered fir, but the fir doors were back-ordered for 3 months! So Lowe's offered us the same door in MAHOGANY FOR THE SAME PRICE!
And it was available immediately!
So My Handyman pulled off the siding and took out the old doors (left), covered the space with plywood and put the new door in place. I don't know how he did it by himself because, if you know anything about mahogany, IT IS HEAVY!
Getting a mahogany door instead of a fir door presented us with a new dilemma!
To paint or not to paint?
The original plan was to paint, that's why we ordered fir.
Looks like we're getting ready for Christmas, doesn't it?! Won't it be pretty with a beautiful wreath!
My Handyman painted the plywood around the door to match the siding and to protect it from the weather until the replacement siding can be installed, which won't happen until the kitchen windows to the left of the door are replaced. And, as you can see, the trim was painted the same green as the trim on the rest of the house. Kinda reminds me of the old Lincoln Logs that my brother and I played with as kids.
