Our first project, after we signed the final papers, was to change the locks on our house. Julie removed the locks and took them to the hardware store to have them re-keyed. Then she began installing them and I finished up the job. I was so proud of our accomplishment!

The doors still needed work. The sunroom door wouldn't shut properly (we found it blowing in the wind one day after I thought I shut and locked it) and the kitchen door stuck so badly that Julie pulled the doorknob completely off the door one day in her attempt to open it. Aaron came over the other day and adjusted our doors. Now we have doors that open, close and lock.


  1. Great narrative pictures. I would be quite excited by doors that open, close, and lock as well.

  2. Wow...Julie is really getting strong.

    I'm proud of both of you changing out the lock much more to come.

    Like the perspective on the first shot and the second one makes me think of grandpa.

  3. Isn't it great to have handy brothers? They are such a blessing!
