Goodbye Screen Doors

Remember these monstrosities?

 
One screwdriver, a couple hours, and a few close calls later, and they’re gone!

   
   
Those beasts were HEAVY! As in I-was-a-complete-idiot-for-thinking-I-could-take-them-down-myself heavy. At one point I was convinced I was going to drop it on my foot and somehow drive myself to the hospital with a mass of crushed bones. No Bueno.  In the end I was able to get them off, but then I had to leave them for Mr. Bunches to haul to the curb.  Especially the front door because it was so much bigger.  This was as far as I was able to move it:

  
The removal of just those doors has already brought the curb appeal up. With some paint on the trim and new windows, then we’ll really be rocking.  Stay tuned!
