This is our old door. It’s dark, kind of weird, and cracked, which makes it hang up in the door frame when you open and close it.

Here’s the new door laying on the old door in the front “lawn.”

Here’s the dog. He was hanging out with me when I cleaned the garage while Craig and his dad were installing the door.

Here’s the new door in the door frame. Look at how purdy it is!

This is when I left to go buy some steaks and ingredients for dinner. Craig and his dad enjoying a beer and admiring their handiwork, and the dog enjoying the sun and his newfound front yard freedom.

Oh, and it’s also covering the left side of the dog. Don’t ask.

At least the window opens up that corner a whole lot!
