House Update – Chronicles of a Bungled Real Estate Deal – Almost never seems close enough Part 3

Habitat for Humanity Restore is one of my new BFF’s. These old doors were original to the house and needed replaced for warmth alone due to the single pane glass.

We were able to pick up these great solid oak doors at the Restore from an old high school for $25 each compared to the Home Depot price of $300 each. With some minor alterations they are installed and will provide the necessary insulation for winter and more privacy from all the plain glass.

Hi Tamy!

Those doors are so cool. What a great idea! I love the idea of reusing something like that. And I love the idea of something that has so much history – what stories those doors could tell. Awesome!



Wow! I really enjoyed all these home remodeling updates – what great deals you got! We do our makeovers in a similar manner – the renovations wait until the deals appear! You and hubby are doing a fantastic job! 🙂
