The BC Deck & at last a New Door
Thu 3rd, Feb, 2011
We are in a bit of a mess here in BC Land & I thought you might like to see what it looks like around here right now.
Finally, finally after waiting for a long time we have a new door going in to replace the h i d e o u s old one that I have lived with and loathed with a vengeance.
I have to be honest I haven’t thought much further than just delighting in getting rid of the old one, though we will be making over the deck in light of this huge improvement…the new door will go nearly across the whole room and have a central opener improving the flow from the Family Room out to the garden…and I am looking right now for a new outdoor sofa for the end…I am actually hoping to find an old vintage bench that I can dress up with heaps of cushions…but we all know the trouble with vintage treasure hunting is it takes time…you can’t just hop out and throw money at it ;-)
There was actually quite a lot to take into consideration here and more than one door person tried to convince me into the joys of bi-fold doors which are everywhere here…but I don’t know I just never like how they fold back all lumpy into the room..although they are the ultimate in indoor/outdoor living and great in this climate….what I really wanted were lovely wooden French doors opening from the centre…but after much deliberation I had to accept that these would have eaten up a lot of space on the deck and considering we spend most of the year out there, eating, on the sofa or on the other side with the bbq we decided that we’d rather have living space than a leetle bit of Frenchie in the door department..
So that’s it from me…the great thing about renovations? You can make excuses not to do housework.
