So glad it is Friday, this felt like the longest week ever, didn’t it? We had a really nice big sliding door in our old family room/new kitchen. There really wasn’t anything wrong with the door except for that it was a bitch to lock, but it just didn’t work with the new kitchen layout. It also was bigger than we really needed it to be. We knew we wanted the door gone, but were unsure what we wanted to do instead. Do we do beautiful french doors somewhere else? A single door? No door? After the dog started peeing everywhere, we came up with many excuses and conclusions to why he was doing it. One of these excuses was that he is so used to a sliding door leading to a nice dog area, and he doesn’t have that in this house. That is how we came up with our “door” solution.
We had to keep a sliding door because that’s all that works for the dog. We decided on making the old slider a window because that is where the sink is going. We also decided to build a new slider, but a much smaller version. It will lead to a better part of the yard to make a dog area. Win win. The process to remove the old door, build a new window, and build a new slider was messy to say the least, but it looks so clean and brings in so much light. I am really happy with what I am seeing so far!
