In search of a New Garage Door …

So, Mr Man and I have been discussing a new garage door and new front door. I am not a happy camper with our existing front door. Too much glass and it worries me. So this morning, we jumped on our bikes, and off we went through our neighborhood and neighborhoods around us. I took my camera 🙂

This is our existing garage door … seems that we have a common one for our area.

I took these next pictures fast! I didn’t want the people living in these homes to think I was doing something crazy … like, stalking them. Hee Hee

Small squares single pane windows (a possibility)

Small squares quad panes

Elongated panels, no windows (uh… no)

Elongated panels with windows (still a no)

Carriage door with windows, hinges, and handles (my fave so far)

Carriage door with rounded windows, hinges, and handles

Carriage door with just windows

Because … this is the door and sidelights that I want! 🙂
(Now, I just have to find who sells them!)

Did you notice that the last picture of the gorgeous door … spring is upon us. The buds are popping on the trees … yay Spring!

Hope you had a great weekend. Hugs,

    Hmmm…. Craftsman wood door, now where have I seen those???

    I vote for same as you on the garage doors…. carriage. We have the Joy version in white and Brawn told me that we can actually buy just the top window panel part and change it out without replacing the whole door. Then you get the hardware and have an instant update. I’m still waiting though….

    Whatever you do, get a door with windows in it – they are WONDERFUL. It’s sooooo nice to go out in the garage during the day without having to turn the light on and feel like it’s night time! I have one for the first time in my life and I LOVE!!! it!!! 🙂
