Closed In

I'm back!  So far, so good on keeping up with my New Year's resolution of posting once a week.  Not doing so hot on the other resolutions.... you know, the ones about working out everyday..... eating right.... all that stuff that doesn't really matter anyways :)

Up until a few days ago, the side view of our house looked like this. Okay, it's not the greatest picture... at all... I hated that side of the house, so I always avoided it when taking pictures and then I forgot to take a before picture (I promise, I'm gettin' back in the groove).  But notice the two gaping holes in the side where garage doors should be.

After having a cat take up residence in our garage (no way it could go into the basement or upstairs, but still) we decided we had to get it closed in.  So we bought our garage doors and we were gonna wait a little while on the openers, but then Lowe's had them on a black Friday sale.  So off to Lowe's at 6:00am on black Friday we went. 

Chris didn't have to work the week following Christmas, so he worked on the garage doors and got them finished.  One day I came home from work and was greeted with this.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah (choir singing)...

There's still work that has to be done, the wood frame that you see will be covered in white trim so they'll look even more finished.  In addition to the garage doors, on this side of the house, we still have to build a retaining wall on the left side, clean up construction mess (and tires???) on the right.  We also need to hang a dusk to dawn light in the peak of the house. 

We have the wiring ready, but we can't find a light that we like.  One of these days we'll come across it.

Here's a few more shots of the beautiful garage doors (inside and out).

To me this change was drastic!  It may not seem that way to you, but after staring at those holes in the wall for so long, it feels good to have them closed in.  Plus, I get a remote for my door to keep in my car... who doesn't love remotes? :)
