#1186 A new garage face

So this evening Mother Nature gave us this stunning sunset…


And those spectacular colours cast a golden glow against a certain new feature…

A new feature in our front yard…

Our new electric garage door!


Yes, electric. Emphasis on. Because we have had an old, manual roller door type monstrosity for the past 2 and a half years.

Poor Hubbie has had to endure this the following tedious routine, 5 days a week:


Open roller door by hand.

Start car.

Reverse car out of garage.

Get out of car.

Close roller door by hand.

Get back into car and go to work.

I don’t know about you, but that’s a tad too much to and fro too early in the day.

Then in the evening.

Pull up to driveway.

Open roller door by hand.

Get into car.

Drive into garage.

Close roller door by hand.


And it was made a thousand times worse this past month, with the roller door creasing and opening at the folds, making the opening and closing of the roller door grindingly painful.

But now. Ahh. That nice, new, roller door, that goes UP

And DOWN, with just the press of a button.

Our garage ‘face’ is not complete. The front of house is still a work in progress.

But with today’s LONG overdue addition, we are finally getting there.
