Carriage Door, fancy stuff!

See, for you to truly appreciate how great this new garage door is, you have to see the BEFORE. So, here it is, in all it’s two toned glory.

We had windows, but the door was a little crooked, heavy wood and not insulated.

The spring broke, so we had to replace it. The garage door opener actually still worked, and the new door is super light and easy to move. This one took two people to open while it was broken.

 

 

And here’s the ending product. It’s splendiferous! Stupendous! Crazy ramalamadingdong cool!

That’s just how I feel about it.

The hardware is just that, the door still opens like normal.

Just cooler….

On other news, the I had just gotten home…and seen the door. The girl went off for a quick ride on her scooter. She came home from a friends house where she was swinging and swung off, jumping, but landed on her wrist and broke it in two places.

So, imagine this.

Here I go in to the ER on crutches with the girl holding her wrist and the fireman following behind, shaking his head and carrying all of our things.

When we left, he had to open the door for both of us and the doctor laughed and said, you’ve got your work cut out for you. You sure you don’t want a neck brace, you know, just so you don’t feel left out?

The fireman gave a grunt, rolled his eyes and ushered us out. *grin*

So, we’re both laid up.

Good thing we got extra ice packs right before my foot surgery… we’re gonna need ’em.

    LOVE the garage doors. They really ARE all that and a bag of chips. 😉 (Do people still say that? Or is my age showing?)

    YIKES on your poor girl. Bless her heart. I hope she heals quickly and feels better soon. I think your fireman deserves a ton of cookies. hehehe
