Doors and Windows, Oh My!

I thought this day would never come! Almost all of the new doors and windows have been installed. I love the new 12′ door overlooking the back deck, it takes the place of the sliding glass door and the angular ‘faux’ fireplace–gorgeous. The new back entry door and the front door are both Dutch doors–so charming. The new larger rebuilt fireplace is going in and the rock surround is almost ready for it’s new mantle–yet to be decided. Take a peek at these pictures sent to me by the’ Talented Mr. Hawkins’ of the renovation progress. I have not been able to make it up for two weeks and the suspense is killing me. College son headed back to school in North Carolina today so I will be leaving ASAP for the mountains. More updates soon.

Double French door to the new deck–the one with the view

New Dutch door for the Kitchen entry

Fireplace surround will be three large pieces of Granite

The round window in the stair well is in–love it

Wow, what a big change doors and windows can make! More later…

    Hi Lissy,

    I saw an image of a white Dutch door that had the greatest looking brass hardware. I’m trying to find a similar look for my house on both door abd hardware. Would you be able to share your source with me? Thank you

      Julie, I love my dutch door. They were made by Rouge Valley. My door hardware was purchased at Jennings in Cashiers.
      I think the brand was Emtek. I hope that helps you.
