Yours *TrulyJuly*

I do everything content.

Seeing double: For security reasons, we can only go ahead demolishing the old entrance once the new entrance is properly finished.

The idea is to move the current entrance forward and open up the first room – the old living room – to turn it into an office.

For security reasons it is easiest to first build the new entrance and, once it is properly lockable, demolish the old entrance.

To get going we needed a new – old doorframe. New, because we couldn’t reuse the old one, and old, because to go with the Woodstock heritage regulations, we have to restore the front facade to its original look.

Living In Delight had suggested checking out the Woodstock Drop Off Facility where we indeed got lucky and found an original oregon pine frame with fanlight for R50. A lucky bargain!

Now however, this frame comes at a cost: That of a befitting heritage door!

And because the heritage frame and door are wider than the new cheap and cheerful doors, we can’t use the old – new door as a placeholder.

So the challenge of the day is: Find a new – old door asap!

Luckily, thanks to the hunt for the heritage window, I know now where to ask. 🙂
