Home Makeover: Exterior Part 2

House Makeover Part Two! It’s been a while and I meant to get an update to you sooner but life happens and anyway! As I shared in Part 1, my mom and her husband bought a fixer upper and it’s undergoing a HUGE transformation. #soexciting! See part 1 that includes all of the ‘as is’ before pictures of the exterior.  House Makeover Before - Exterior

There’s an entire house in there somewhere!

That car port pergola thing will be removed. The concrete will become a beautiful patio at some point. This is the main door to the home. Both exterior doors and storm doors are being replaced. The main door on the left is being replaced with a stunning Pella® exterior door. House Makeover Before @diyshowoff

Mom headed to the showroom then we met with Mike, a rep from Pella Windows and Doors,  to review options, to get measurements and a discussion on the process: 1. choosing the products, 2. a 2nd measurement appointment, 3. door installation, and 4. the Insynctive technology installation and instructions. 3 and 4 is usually done in the same step, however with a complete makeover, step 4 will be finished once the electrical and drywall are complete. I told you it’s a total transformation on this place. Sneak peek of what I mean in the photo below.

The best part is security, comfort and convenience of choosing a quality Pella door, especially with Insynctive technology!

What? Pella Insynctive technology is a family of smart home products that allow homeowners to check windows and doors at a glance including an entry deadbolt sensor, status indicator and bridge. Windows, doors and garage doors have the ability to be monitored in-home using the Insynctive Status Indicator or homeowners can monitor via a smart device when the bridge is connected to a compatible home automation or security system. Pella blinds and shades can be controlled using the Insynctive Remote Control or when connected to a compatible home automation system via the Bridge. So cool, right? Mom will now know when we’ve raided her home/helped ourselves to the pool and thrown a party when they’re on vacation.
