Our side porch had one last item to resolve - a new exterior door. The existing french door is a repurposed interior door in a style that would not have been found on a primary entrance to the home (and is also quite drafty).
Nate and Darryn dropped off our new solid wood-paneled door for Mike to prime and paint before installation.
It's a beautiful door whose detail matches the Federal panel detail of our new front entry door (which I have yet to post on as we are waiting on a few last details).
As far as the renovation goes as a whole, we have had to be quite patient as we wait for final installation of a few key elements, particularly heat upgrades.
Thankfully, after several months without any heat (and Mike having to actually supplement with plug-in heaters to do some painting), the main house finally has heat again. Unfortunately, the entire back el (from the kitchen back to the mudroom) is still without.
Obviously, having heat, especially during the mid-winter months is integral to finishing steps like painting, floor finishing, and turning the water on.
