We have doors! The front door is just temporary till I make up my mind about what kind of door I want.
The back doors are permanent and won’t be going anywhere! It was a bit time-consuming getting them squared and level, but putting them into place wasn’t too bad. I was just a bit worried about Brian dropping them on my fingers as I tried to line up the bottom pins with the hinges. The doors are from PolyTech, a company right here in Nova Scotia. So they know how to make doors and windows that can stand up the Atlantic. Well, that’s what we hope!
As you can see in this picture, Brian also finished installing the underlay on this south of the roof. Once the underlay on the north side is done, the house will be pretty much weather-tight. So hopefully no more floods in the house!
Now if I can just decide on the front door….. I really like the idea of an all-glass door with windows on either side, but it kinda creeps me out that people could walk up to the door and have a clear view into the house. Meanwhile, the west and south sided of the house are almost entirely windows – I really make no sense! On the other hand, a solid painted door would be nice, because it’ll be just about the only pop of colour on the exterior of the house.

Maybe a curved transom above the door to echo the curve of the peak?

One thing I’m sure about is that I really want a bright green door.
What kind of door would you choose?
