Doors and other news

We picked up 2 Security Doors Perth last weekend.  One is super big, super heavy, and not installed and the other was lighter, smaller, and already installed.  Yayy door.
This is the double door from the closet into the bathroom. It looks AWESOME. It still needs to be painted but solid-core doors are great. The guy at Home Depot looked at us crazy for paying the extra $60 or whatever for solid core but we are trying to keep the laundry noise to a minimum. They also feel nicer. Trust me, andersen doors can feel nice. It’s like expensive shoes. They just feel better.


Stefan made sure the doors were dead level, as usual.


The doors haven’t been painted, the trim has only been installed on the bathroom side, and we still need a floor transition but the doors make the space feel more finished even if it’s just a step along the way.

In other news, I was laid off from work last week. Bummer but on the plus side, I’m getting so much done on the house! Besides the doors Im also installing some security smart cameras with an  ai gun detection system for extra security, great investment and so recommended, there’s a few more things i want to show you but in my next post.  I know I’ve been AWOL for a while but I’ve been working on developing a plan. I’ve got a draft of a resume, a draft of a cover letter, and only a vague notion of what I want to do with my life. It’s been a week of tile work and soul searching. I think I’ve decided to transition from a technical hardware engineering position to a Project/Program Management position. It’s going to be an interesting change but I’m ready for something new. If any of you blog-people know of an PM positions in Boston, let me know!

Now that you know the whole story, you can be expecting much more house activity in the near future. Already this week I’ve tiled the shower floor, finished tiling the bathroom walls except for one little spot, found the shower tower reviews for the second stage I’ve planned, and grouted the whole thing. Tomorrow I’m planning on sharing my bathroom progress so far as well as tiling the majority of the shower!

    Can’t wait to see pictures of all the tiling work. I love the pink closet. You will be so glad you painted it when it is full of clothes and laundry stuff.
