New/Old Garage Doors....

We've spent the last couple of days at JR and Ashley's new house in Southtown, helping them put doors on the garage at the back of their property.  The doors are a mix of new wood and some old shiplap that was stacked up in the garage.
 Making the frame with the new wood....
JR in his overalls...he reminded me of Pappa, my dad, who was always in these things!

I admire their wish to use/reclaim some of the materials that they are finding there.  Some of this ship lap was painted in a pale mauve color and some in two different colors of green.  There was some old style wallpaper on some of them -- Indians and Pirates, so I'm thinking it was used on the walls in a child's room at some point.
 We got one door up by Tuesday evening.

The final product was really nice -- turned out great.  Getting those doors level and meeting in the right place was a bit of a job, but they got it!  

On Wednesday Jeff was there, too, to work on their security project.  And they are getting a new drive way at the front of the house in the next week or two.  Things are moving along!

By the way, they've found a really good BBQ place that we walked to on Tuesday for lunch -- it was fabulous! I can highly recommend B&D Ice House on So. Alamo, if you're hungry.

  1. I love that they reused some old shiplap to make their new garage doors. Shiplap is such a neat product, and it has a great look to it. It sounds like your friends have a lot of remodeling projects they are working on. I am interested to see what they decide to do next!
