a different security door.

Good morning.
I've just returned from cleaning the Salon.
It ended up being a very busy week. Glad it's the weekend.  :-)
I ended up not getting my teeth smoothed. The dentist cancelled due to back spasms. I'm rescheduled for next Wed. Hope he's doing better by then.
I also have an appointment for the car recall on Monday, and scheduled my Colonoscopy on the 17th. Busy month.
We've also made a change of plans for the security door for our Vegas home.
We didn't realize at the time, but the door we and everyone else liked,  only comes in 32 inch width. Our front door is 36. Soo, back to looking. Since we really didn't like any of the doors with decorative bars, (they all look like your in jail) we finally settled on a.....
LARSON Secure Elegance Almond Full-View Laminated Security Glass Storm Door from Lowe's.
Actually, Craig wants Sandstone instead of Almond, but after looking at pics of the house, I think the Sandstone will be too dark.  The door has.....KeepSafe Glass with protective security shield - inner layer withstands repeated blows by blunt objects. And a .....Guardian 3 Locking System secures the door in 3 places and offers the most secure storm door hardware available.
So now we have to get approval of the door from the Architectural Review Committee of our HOA. That requires filling out a form, attaching pics of the door and front of the house. Anything outside the front door, including adding a storm door needs pre-approval. We would like to have this installed on our next trip, and the committee meets just twice a month. So we hope to get it sent out this week.
And now, time to get on with my weekend.   :-)


  1. Wow, don't let the door police drag you away for picking the wrong door! We used to have a section of the city I used to live in, where they told you what colors to use on your house, the type of doors, windows, plants etc. Don't worry about getting older Wayne, your a fine wine, getting better with age.

    I have the same door in dark green. The paint does fade after being in the sun for a long time.

    Great choice. Having an HOA can be a little challenging at times but they do keep the neighborhood consistent. I prefer having one. It keeps the neighborhood from turning into a carnival.
