Before and After

We have done a few projects in the condo.  Of course, it will never end.  But it does feel good to get these few things done. 

 This screen door going from porch to patio.  It was a pain.  Opened to the patio and if anyone was sitting there it would be difficult to get around them to get into the door.  Also hard if you were coming out with drinks or food.  Always using my elbow to open that darn door.
 This is from the inside of porch looking out onto patio.  Did not like the bars going across that door either.
 And here is the after.  We got retractable screen doors. Retractable means that the screens disappear into the housing on either side.  Part of the wall was taken out so it is more open.  This picture shows one screen closed and one open.
 Both screens opened and disappeared  It is so nice to be able to just walk in and out without struggling with the stupid door.
 Both screens closed.  We will have to be careful not to walk through them because they are hard to see when closed.
 Old microwave.  I am sure it is original to the condo which was built in 1992.  Still worked but it sure did moan and groan. 
And it got replaced with a white, new one. 


  1. Great job on both improvements! You will really enjoy that new passage way to the outdoors!

  3. Those are really awesome! I like the concept of the retractable doors. Although it can be frustrating to pass through the door while you carry something, I’m so glad that you found a way for your convenience. And, oh, please be careful when removing the panel. It is massive, and you might hurt yourself!
