We are pretty certain there used to be French doors over the entrance to our two-flat. It makes sense when you look at the sill there. It's the only thing that makes sense. We'd like to restore them someday and change the awning when it's ready to be replaced. We envision some nice ironwork framing the doors and for safety of course.
The wall to the room where those windows are was added at some point also. It makes the apartment a 2 BR plus den. When we rehab the upstairs, we may restore that as well and open up the room again-perhaps with a half wall, so that a desk could go behind it.
Notice the a/c in the window? We told our tenant he could not put an a/c in that window because there is no sill, but he did it anyway. I was pretty po'd about that. Don't get me started on our tenants though. They are on my bad list.
You can see our new address plaque and light in this photo too. Steve obscured the address number in PhotoShop. The door will be replaced with one Steve is going to build. Maybe next year, depending how other projects progress.
I thought I'd share some of our future plans as during the week not much happens on the house.
Like I've said, we are in it for the long haul!
