The House get a new garage door

8/23/03:
 The complex is scheduled to be painted this fall. So this was a good time to get a new garage door and replace the old 1 piece flip open door with a roll up door with the added befit of natural light from the windows.

  One thing I had to figure out was how to keep my special mailbox. I have always like this container for a mailbox for a couple of reasons. It is huge and can hold a months worth of mail in it and the nice Bud design.

 Mounting the box to the old door was no problem. All I had to do was screw it to the wood. Mounting to the new rolling door presented some issues that limited how and where I could put in such a large mail box.

 I did come with what I think was a rather clever solution. I guess my mechanical engineering job duties pay off. I slipped a couple of hinges under the mailbox trim and screwed them through the mailbox into a board.
