House Post #6 - Main Floor Repair (pt. 1)

Since this is a catch-up post it kinda falls out of order from some of the previous ones but I don't care, here it is. The first thing(s) I did to my house was getting a new front door (and new water pipe from the street and new circuit breaker box). The previous door, which I sadly don't have any close up pictures of, was pretty much a glorified piece of cardboard with the kind of lock you find on antique desks. I felt like I was going to fall into my house before even turning the knob when I would stumble home drunk. The new door was a good investment and while I am trying to do as much labor on my home as I can, I really just had no interest in completely framing a new door and dealing with all the details involved in constructing something that I needed yesterday. I hired a contractor to do it and feel like I got a fair price.

This is the best picture I had of the original door

While I lost the storm door, I gained some privacy and security.

Who did you contract to do your door? I ask because it looks like we got our doors installed around the same time and the guy that did my backdoor said he was working on another door in Canton.
