We’re getting a new front door– or more accurately: a new Entry System.
[One must use the jargon that one encounters when one is working with individuals in a new and different industry, mustn’t one?]
Three times during the last few week we met here at the house with the sales rep from the door and window store. While our windows are fine, our front door is older, wooden, and because of sun exposure, impossible to keep properly refinished. Many of our neighbors have replaced their Entry Systems with more energy-efficient/visually pleasing doors and sidelights. So after talking with the sales rep, we decided to do the same thing.
Our new Entry System will be a six-panel American cherry-stained fiberglass door with no glass in it. Half sidelights and an arched transom with beveled glass and gluechip glass complete the Entry System. Pretty and private.
Of course, it’ll be weeks until this door is made; having a special order arched transom slows production down a bit. And then who knows how long after that until the door can be installed.
Nothing is fast in the world of home improvement. But that’s probably a good thing. It gives me more time to practice saying Entry System out loud– without rolling my eyes as I say it. Lord knows, I wouldn’t want to use the wrong term for our new front door. 😉
