French Door Replaces Old Kitchen Window

Hi, This is Karen again filling in for Mike who is slaving away with the interior remodeling.  It’s a cold January day here in Virginia Beach; in fact, we actually had a few big fat snow flakes today!  So, I sat here today with a hot cup of coffee in hand trying to catch up with documenting all the work that has taken place this past year.

With the old kitchen demolished, we were ready to take out the kitchen window and replace it with a French Door.  Because the garage is in the back of the house as well as homeowner parking space, this back entrance will be the main entry point from the garage to the house.  Additionally, the french door would provide a wide entry to the house and will be most beneficial as we continue the interior remodel with the requirements of carrying in large construction products, cabinetry and appliances.

After removing the old window, we than had the job and mess of cutting  through the concrete wall to enlarge the opening.  The bond beam above the doorway was broken so we had to put steel lentil beams to span the opening.
