honey I'm home.

Trev & I feel back at home now that we're Home Depot regulars once again. Once upon a time we had to drive the 45 minutes to Kelowna twice a week to get our HD fix. * Eight years ago Vernon was hardcore lacking in the home improvement scene... yes we've been in the renovation game for awhile. 
I mentioned earlier that garden doors aren't doing it for me anymore. Call me old fashioned but I like sliders and envisioned a wall of them opening onto the new covered deck I pray is within budget. My dream of a 12 foot patio door sounded a bit SPENDY (and fingerprint-y) but I decided to get some quotes. Well the first 2 came back in the $3000+ range and I almost gave up until I saw Jeld-wen made a 4-panel slider.
example
The next day I marched down to Home Depot - kids in tow - and squealed almost as loud as Gabe when the special order price tag came back at $842!! Aaaaaaand they were having a 15% off all exterior windows & doors sale so guess whose dream came true?!

This door is significant and exciting on so many levels: level 1 - it only cost $715.70 + tax, level 2 - it was the first purchase we made for our home addition, level 3 - it arrives at our door in less than 3 weeks which means we don't have to pick it up or store it long, level 4 - this is really happening!!
Because we aren't financing the renovation, we've broken the project into more manageable & affordable pieces (sections if you will) the first being concrete... boring *yawn*. This is Trevor's area, but I'm told the foundation should be dug and poured by mid-August so stay tuned for a great, big and definitely not-kid-friendly hole in the backyard.

AMAZING. I love that you're being a real grownup and breaking it up. If I showed this post to Billy he would point at the screen and say 'Seeeee?'. I'm taking pointers! And, this gives me enough time to save up enough money to come see this project in person! (I'm totally invited, right?)

Congratulations! You finally have a sliding patio door that you’ve been wanting to have in your home. You must be very happy after the installation. I wish you have an after photo of the installation. I’d love to see how it looks like in your home.

I’d really be delighted to have a sliding patio door like this! It’s really gorgeous. It has an inviting feeling! Once you see the door open, it’s like you’re tempted to walk and go on your patio. ;)

I really don’t see it as old-fashioned. I believe sliding patio door is very sophisticated. It’s nice that you found a way to afford it. Even I would find every available option there is to make our house more attractive and elegant. =D
