A few weeks ago, Kevin and I were talking about the renovations we had accomplished on our house back in Burlington. It took three years to completely gut and rebuild our home. As we were reminiscing, we started to think about implementing some of the things we learned from that experience into this home.
Our house has a garage and a faux window beside it. The garage doors are steel framed with wood panels—not exactly the most attractive. And the window looks similar. One of the features we added to our Burlington house was a old wooden barn sliding door (well, it wasn't really old, Kevin made it from rough milled wood then stained it to look worn). This is it, below:
So, we thought it might be nice to do something similar to our garage doors and window. Kevin worked all day today on cutting and staining some boards. As soon as he's done, I'll post some pictures. I think it will add some rustic charm to what is currently a utilitarian looking frontage. I can't wait for Kevin to be done.
