Arrival of the New Front Door

Good morning,

Something we have wanted for a long time is a new front door for our home.  We finally ordered one that we really, really like and these images are of the day it was delivered.  This whole process is a challenge because the mahogany door is so heavy.

On the left in the above image is our friend, Bill the Home Builder, who arrived to help us get it into our garage until the day he will install it.  On the right is the delivery truck driver.
Just getting the door delivered was a challenge.  That's My Honey on the left and Bill on the right pushing the door, sidelights and all, up the drive.  The truck driver was pulling from the other side.

This trio got the door into the garage where it is safe from rain until it can be installed.  Stay tuned and I'll have images of the big day the door is installed.

All the best,

Oh, I can't wait to see it!

Oh! I thought I would see the finished product! That whole thing must weigh a few pounds!

We had to wait until Bill had a day to install it and for the weather to be nice enough to do it all in one day.

And, yes, it is very heavy! We had to take the door out of the frame to reduce the weight to get it from the garage to the front of the house.

Stay tuned! ;)

How neat! A new door is always a fine addition. Our was replaced a couple of years ago.

That's a big door for certain, Lois, and will be looking forward to seeing it installed in your home.
