Keys, keys everywhere…… not one of them locked this door….
When we bought this house they handed us a whole handful of keys. No joke a big handful. I shared a picture of the keys on Instagram a while back!!
Its not like we live on a ranch with multiple buildings and places that need to be locked up. It’s just the house and a small shed.
After trying every key in the bundle I found out that none of them were for the front door or the back door…. This left us with the side door and two keys that actually worked….luckily!!!
With two keys all was well…….almost…. nope……
Even with two keys we were constantly locking ourselves out of the house.
The silver lining
Here are a couple of the in progress pics.
We were debating about installing these ourselves. Once the Lowes guy came to measure the doors he told us that they were not standard size and that it would be a little bit tricky to install them. He said we would be able to still purchase standard size doors, luckily, but that a separate kit was needed to get them installed.
That was enough for me to decide I didn’t want to do it myself. It took 2 installers over 4 hours to install 2 doors. So glad we opted for them to do it. They are pros, we are not!
