I said in a previous post that I would write about our storm doors so I shall do that today. We had different objectives for the front and the back of the house. We'll start with the front door. We LOVE the look of this door and want it to be eye catching so I didn't want any lines to obscure the view of the door. We ordered the storm door with just a plain sheet of glass. It is actually removable and comes with a screen you can put in if you want air flow but we've never used the screen. It is a north facing door and most of our breezes come from the south so it wouldn't get a lot there anyway. We love that we get the benefit of having the storm door without ruining the look of the door. We got it with a lock giving us the option of leaving the front door open but still having a safety measure. (Not that our town has a high crime rate but it makes me feel better when I'm home alone.)
Here is the lovely view from inside looking out. It was very pretty with all the spring/summer flowers in bloom out there but there isn't much left now. Autumn has come and it is all going dormant.
And when we have the door open letting all that wonderful light flow through, passers-by get a lovely view mostly of our piano bench which is never pushed in properly. :)
So those are our two kinds of storm doors. Each has a different purpose and fulfills it exactly.
These storm doors are Larson doors. The particular doors we chose weren't the cheapest doors they had but they also weren't the most expensive. However, they are perfect for our needs.
