Doors and Windows Make It So Much Nicer

Over labor day weekend we managed to get the garage dried in, but it was by no means finished or secure.  And since cooler temperatures are on their way we thought it might be nice to work without the wind ripping through the garage.  We put a window over the future workbench (right) and one looking out to the west.
 Our back door worked out better than expected.  We snapped up this fiberglass half light door on clearance even though it was an unusual out-swing configuration.  Fortunately our vintage heater will be tucked inside this corner of the garage so it will never be blocked by an open door.
The side garage door is just down the sidewalk front the front door so I wanted something that would not look cheap in comparison.  My solution was found in the clearance bin.
Yes, we used the same door twice.  I think they look great together but I do have slight obsession with this door.
We even managed to install the used garage door we purchased last winter.  It still needs a good cleaning after being stored under our deck, but at least the garage is secure.

We also have another, bigger project coming up this weekend...stay tuned.
