Two productive weekends in a row! This weekend we finished the priority to-do list by installing my new front storm door and replacing the leaky kitchen faucet.
Front Storm Door
This Saturday dad and I tackled the installation of my front storm door. After installing the back door last weekend, we anticipated this would go a lot easier… and we were right. My back storm door is a Larson, and the front is a Pella. After installing both back-to-back, I’d have to recommend the Pella door for it’s ease of installation. Everything was pre-drilled and they supplied spacers to help set the door properly in the frame. Out of the two, I’d say this one would be easier to do if you don’t have a helper handy.
My new front storm door is full glass with black trim, so it matches the “eyeliner” of my house much better. The only thing I had to do was paint the trim around the door black to match the windows. It looks amazing… I think it was made just for me 🙂
In my post last week, I mentioned that my kitchen faucet was on my priority to-do list, because it has been dripping constantly since I moved in. I picked up a Kohler faucet at the big box store, and the installation of the faucet was pretty simple to do. The hardest part about installing a new faucet is really the space in which you have to work. Lying on your back trying to loosen pipes that may be rusted or gunked on is not an easy task. There’s a nice tutorial on Doityourself.com that you should check out before deciding to tackle this project yourself.
Lamp Post Sign
I also began working on a new lamppost address sign for my house. After hours and hours of painstakingly scouring the internet for something I liked, I decided to just make my own. Read my post about the process I used.
