I know, I know. You all (y’all where I’m from but I’ll try and make my English teachers proud) have been waiting with baited breath to hear about the architectural change we have been planning. I would like for you to keep your expectations low, something I have come to master over my adult life, and know that I’m making a big deal out of nothing.
There are a pair of French doors off the back parlor room of the house. They’re narrow and have a door jamb in between each door making them awkward and pointless. Not to mention they aren’t original to the house as indicated by the framing uncovered when Habalis removed the siding.
So, we have decided to take the French doors out and replace them with what would have been there originally, floor to almost ceiling windows that match the windows in the front parlor. We had to make sure that we were correct in assuming there were windows before there were French doors in order to keep the Department of Historic Resources happy and that’s OK. In the end it will look so much nicer and more authentic.
