Okay, so we close on the house on friday!!!! Anyway the garage was finished off when the additions to the home were done. The previous owners put french doors in the front of the garage. I like french doors, I think they are very pretty but I don't like them as exterior doors on the front of a property, leading to a deck in back is fine. To me them being in the front just seems to be an advertisement to break in. The doors already have damage to the lock, either the previous home owners did damage while being evicted, or a break in attempt has been made. It seem the bank or previous owner had someone come in and install like master locks on the inside of the doors to prevent them from being opened.
The area we are in isn't a bad area by any means but crime can happen anywhere. Okay now that my explanation is done I need ideas. I want to remove the french doors, a glass slider would also bring up the whole open invite to enter issue I have. I'm almost thinking wooden double doors but I'm not entirely sure that would match the style of the exterior of the home. Then there is the possibility of framing the opening smaller and just installing a single front entry type door. Just wondering if anyone else may have any other ideas as to what we could do?
