Happy Friday!!!  Today is a fun update for me 🙂 I get to share the finished exterior of our home and our garage door pick!  If you missed our selection process, you can read all about it HERE!  I love garage doors, they can change the entire look of your house and add so much value with curb appeal!

garage-finishedI love my new garage doors 🙂  I went with the a Carriage House style door from the Showcase line with the AccuFinish in Dark Walnut!

shop-finishedHere is the door on my shop 🙂

measure-for-doorsWe had Texas Overhead Garage Doors install the doors.  We always like to share great companies and products with you and this company was unbelievable to work with!  They came out and took measurements of our garage openings, to start.  This is our step-dad (aka our builder) talking with them.

cleaning-garge-outI’m not kidding when I say this company was awesome, our garages were a mess and they cleaned them out before install!!!!

garage-door-installHere is a bit of the install process 🙂

texas-overhead-garage-doorsThe garage door opener that they installed is AMAZING!  It is so quiet even when you are inside the garage. This is the one we picked for our house.

raynor-myqIt also comes with a smart device called the MyQ.  It has so many features and one of my favorite is that it will send me a text message if we leave the garage door open….I’m actually surprised at how often we do this 😉

remote-control-programmingTXOHD set the whole thing up for me 🙂 Piece of cake!

finished-houseAnd here is our finished house with the garage doors installed!  I LOVE the look of the doors and the quality is so much better than I have ever had in a garage door.  I just can’t say enough about the people of Texas Overhead Garage Door.  We had a lot of companies and contractors in and out of the house while we were building and these guys were one of our favorites by far.  They are professional, friendly and easy to work with.  If you are in the market for new garage doors and in the area, I can’t recommend them enough!

I still have a few more house updates to share with you guys and I’ll be back soon to share!  If you have missed any you can check them out HERE!

  1. Beautiful doors – and your house is really coming along! You may have already heard this, but you might want to secure your manual release mechanism so thieves can’t access it. If you do a google search you can see how a thief can open your automatic garage door from outside in about 5-6 seconds with a coat hanger. This happened in my niece’s neighborhood, so the police recommended securing the mechanism with a couple of zip ties. That made it much more difficult for the thieves, but kept the inherent safety in place.

    I love all your projects, and look forward to seeing the completed house 🙂

  2. Your home is looking beautiful! Well done on all the gorgeous finishes. Love and hugs from Cape Town. xx
