We clearly bought the house with the worst garage door in the neighborhood; maybe even Southern California. The paint was a cross between Pepto Bismol and Calamine lotion (both bring up very unpleasant memories) with touch-ups done in a purpley mauve. We didn't want a new metal door on our Spanish style home, but didn't want to pay for what we really liked. So I studied garage doors until I came up with a desirable design and color. Our neighbors thought we were crazy as they watched us working on it every weekend for the last month. "If it were me I'd just buy a new metal garage door", which is what they did and probably had it installed the same day. We finally just put the finishing touches on the new door over the weekend and I'm a little "house proud" right now.

When one of Tim's work buddies saw the new doors he simply said, "Nice knockers".
