Lake House Door Installed

Lake House Door Installed

One significant upgrade that I wanted to make to the lake house this spring was to replace the old door, which was a plain white door. I chose a door that fit the mid century modern design of the house, and had glass that matched the tile pattern of the lake house’s entryway.

The door also fits with the existing wrought iron storm door:

Installing the door was fairly simple, since it fit in the existing frame with only minor adjustments to the top hinge. I had to drill a hole for the deadbolt, since the previous door did not have one. From there, I hauled the old door away and the project was done.
