Looking at getting a new front door to replace the existing double. I'm liking this look (1st pic of light wood oak doors)... Also, pictured is my home's frontage from da ousside. I'm thinking that the double door look is getting a bit dated.ImageImage

That door is 5/7 if you want glass at the entry way.

Sometimes I regret getting a glass door where people can easily see if you are just trying to ignore them, or if you don't want pesky kids at the door on Halloween. ;)

Yeah I hear you on the privacy front ol:

I gotta find the door distributor. A local builder uses it on all of their custom homes in the nearby town I've been scoping real estate out in lately. Not sure if they will give me a contact.

The fake stained glass looking stuff is amazing and perfect for this application. Cut it to size and stick it on with only water for adhesion.

True but those pesky crib lizards will still see his shadow zip by if any lights are on.

I looked into this. The problem is there is no major door or window manufacturer that will warranty a double pane window if you apply a film to it. I did this in my garage and learned really quickly why.... The tint repels the heat back between the panes and you end up super-heating the gas between the glass and either blow out the seal or crack the glass. Ended up costing me a new window. :(

If you want it tinted, buy it that way from the manufacturer.

There will be no traditional appraisal charges at closing, and lenders no longer will be required to assume responsibility for the accuracy of home valuations.

If a couple hundred dollars at closing for an appraisal makes or breaks the deal...

You shouldn't be buying a house.

deciding a value without actually looking at the property.

put another way; a home loan is a secured loan, secured with the asset that is the home. If the home value is not accurate and the borrower defaults, what secures that asset?

This is housing bubble 2.0

This is for refis that have 20% equity with their current loan already. I suspect it's removing the appraisal not for the financial impact but the speed of service before interest rates increase. It's still a bad idea.

Oh no, I totally understand it.

But Fannie and Freddie's argument is that it puts money back into the pockets of the consumers. Bruh.

This is the equivalent of using KBB for trade values in 'excellent condition' with a blindfold on. A dealership would be in trouble REAL quick. Multiply x100 and apply to the housing market... :yikes:
