Busy Weekend


The weather has been beautiful , sunny and warm . Papa , Dad and our family friend  we will call  here Mr R  has been putting in a sliding patio door for us in the kitchen where the old door was .

                                                       BEFORE !

                                                                                DURING !

New Door (1 of 1)-2

                        New Door (1 of 1)-3

With these guys there is a lot of jokes sing songs and reciting as they work , it is funny to hear them . Our dad and R when they get together are always like that  , I roll my eyes look up to the sky  , Brits , a strange breed lol !

New Door (1 of 1)-4

They had been working since the early morning till late afternoon!

                      New Door (1 of 1)-5

They worked for hours on this as they had to strip away walls , siding  and electrical had to be moved and tend to  the way the old farm house was built which isn’t always the best !

They put the door in  made sure no buggies could get in from around the edges and called it a day !

Yesterday Papa re located and hooked up the wiring for the inside lamp , switches and the outside lamp as well as dry walled the inside and prepared it to be completed ! 

                                                              AFTER !


And there we have a new sliding door in my kitchen . Oh does it ever make a big difference so much lighter . Miggs and Harley like it  Harley has a new spot now to watch the birdies  lol ! Miggs likes it cause she can see what's going on inside to !

This is a double sided door and has handles on both inside and out and  you can  have the screen on either side to  and use either side to !


I can see the entire back yard now WOOHOO !  Papa still needs to do the finishing touches inside and out but it looks good ! Really suits the look of the kitchen inside and out !  Our hutch we had there is to be modified  for the space .  The base of the hutch is in the living room  the actual hutch part Papa will work his magic on that in his  wood shop later  and build a new base !

New Door (1 of 1)-6


We are very pleased with our new patio door and all the light it gives to this old farm house kitchen ! Mr R will be back later to cap the outside to finished it off !  Mr R has had his own window company for many years and is semi retired now .

Then after all this Papa had lots of thick green grass to cut and trim around the gardens and property . Everything has been blooming and growing like crazy including the weeds  lol !

So that was our busy weekend .

Until next time  .  Thanks for popping by !

There's nothing better than lots of light and being able to see outdoors. It looks great! Good job boys!

The lads did a great job, and yes...a couple of Brits with a project to do, makes for fun listening :)
