The idea is to build functional doors that look good. Our carport stores firewood, tools, our clothes dryer, sometimes the ATV, sometimes the trailer, and a bunch bits and pieces. Admittedly, it looks messy and not very welcoming. Adding doors will provide slightly more security, but mostly will create what we call "curb appeal'.
Then, Kevin conditioned the planks of wood ready for staining. Once the doors were stained, he put everything together. He and I lifted the individual (heavy) sliders and placed them on the track. Kevin added the coach bolts (which he painted black) to add character. All we need now are handles... oh, and two more doors, which Kevin is currently building. I just love them!
