Also - like my old Women's health magazines used to tape up the window?
We kept the door open with the screen closed until about 11 pm so it could dry as much as possible.
We also sealed up the letter box as it was a bit open and without the screen would let winter weather in (COLD).
It's definitely bright, though it doesn't seem this bright in real life.
Still need to take some inside pictures with natural light.
It's way worse now than it was when I took this picture.
We removed the weather stripping which we thought was causing it, but nope. Going to have to figure that one out.
Next project - remove the screen door permanently and fix the door frame. Also re-paint all the trim around the door and window. Next Spring we'll also strip the paint from the porch and stain it well, as the brown paint that's on it from the old owners is majorly chipping. I also need to get some Fall mums, though the geraniums in the planter are still growing like crazy and I never remember to water them.
