Exterior Doors for the New House

A few weeks ago we picked out several exterior  doors for the house that we are building. A front door, two garage doors, a walk through door into the garage, and a walk through door going from inside the garage into the house.

I didn’t know that it would be so hard! We’ve ordered the doors and they should be in within a couple of weeks. Can’t wait to see them installed.

All of the doors will be in a walnut finish. They are all fiberglass.


I did not end up being able to get the front door that I really wanted, but the one that we ended up ordering is fine. Plus, the one that we ordered is about a thousand dollars less, which is nice.

Unfortunately, a couple of details about the doors may be a surprise to me. This is because I walked away while my husband and the salesman were wrapping up the door order. I found out that they had changed the window style in one of the doors without asking me, but the change that they made was okay.  I also am not sure exactly what windows we ended up ordering for the garage doors (I think that I saw them, but just forgot). Neither of these were a big deal to me.

I did make them go back and change the order so that all the doors were the same color whenever I realized that the doors they ordered were different colors. This seemed like a no brainer to me, but I guess not to them. LOL

So, lesson learned: stay present until the ORDER NOW button is clicked.
