  1. Thank you for this reminder that the do, undo and redo aren’t failures but learning experiences. I shall forward this one.πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks my friend. The Do, Undo, Redo lesson has been an important one in my life and I am glad I can share it. Soon you two will come over for dinner and drinks to celebrate the completed doors. I look forward to it!πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you for this post! I am in the middle of major construction and feel overwhelmed sometimes…but my vision is coming together beautifully, if not as quickly and perfectly as I would like. Hmmm…exactly like life!

    1. You are more than welcome. Thanks for coming by! Having been involved in major projects before, oh like taking an ENTIRE house down to the studs, I know well the anxiety and I also know how it comes together (and sometimes untogether, temporarily of course!). Hang onto that vision, it will serve you well and in the end, when all that dust settles (and has been vacuumed up) just think about being able to step back and finally have before you what was once only your head. It’s powerful and magic and makes you believe. Good look and post pics. We DIYers LOVE pics!!!πŸ™‚

  3. Where does the time go? I read this when you posted it and didn’t have time to comment…now it’s over a week later and I wonder if you have the doors all back in, snug and tight and straight. The photo makes me totally envious, but I guess it’s one step at a time, and patience rules the day, and “Do, undo, redo” certainly is another appropriate motto for remodeling and life. I’m glad you have an honest contractor and a good relationship with him. It takes two to tango so I’m sure he’s responding to your own straightforward attitude, too. I hope it wasn’t too crazy this week!! Looking forward to hearing more…

    1. If you find out where time goes, please let me know. Not sure though it will change anything as it probably will still fly by, but it would be an answered question. As I type this the contractor is at the house fixing the doors yet again. Third time is a charm? I am doing my best to send positive vibes his way and today I feel much more at peace than I did on Thursday when I discovered the problems from the second attempt at installation. You are right though, I am grateful he is honest and has admitted the mistakes and is working to right them. Oh the patience…πŸ™‚ Now to relax some more and go visit your site and see some awesome photos.

    1. They do look wonderful and so nice to have them functioning as well. (they were out of level and not all the doors opened!) Love the outdoor/indoor experience – my favorite!πŸ™‚
