Aussie housewife’s plan to install a glass door in her home with aluminum hinges
A Sydney housewife who installed a glass doorway into her bedroom has been inundated with emails from people offering advice on how to safely and effectively install the door into the bedroom wall.
The woman’s husband is also frustrated by the installation, and is offering suggestions on how the house could be made more “secure”.
In an interview with Mashable, the owner of the house, Marissa Karr, said she wanted to be very clear about what she was doing.
“It was just me.
I’ve always done this, I’ve never thought of myself as a perfectionist,” she said.
“I’ve been living with my partner for 10 years, and for me to do something like this was just a huge leap for me.”
She added: “It’s a beautiful piece of art.
It was very much a love letter to my husband, who is really into the project, and it’s just so much work.”
It was a challenge.
But at the same time, it’s something that was a lot easier for me than it would have been for anybody else.
“The new door, which Karr said cost $250 to build, is about four metres high and is attached to a frame by a wire and an aluminum hinge.
The house’s resident dog is also inside.
The doors are a new addition to the home and are a “living” installation, with the walls, floor and ceiling being covered with wood.
“But we got a lot of good feedback on how secure they were. “
They’re pretty fragile, they’re going to be broken, they’ve got a little bit of an open crack in them, and that’s a bit scary,” she told Mashable.
“You can tell that I’ve got something very strong and stable, and I’ve also got this little door that was actually quite fragile.” “
Karr has also used the door to house her dogs, who are all grown up, but she said she was “quite protective” of them. “

Karr has also used the door to house her dogs, who are all grown up, but she said she was “quite protective” of them.
“The dogs are really attached to the door.
I think it’s been really reassuring for them to have a door that’s like this,” she explained.
“Because they don’t know how to walk around with it.
They don’t have that experience with it, they haven’t done it with the wooden door.”
But Karr is keen to stress that she has not installed the door for anyone else, and she does not intend to ever install it in the house.
“My husband and I have always had this idea of building this house in the backyard, and then we would go out to do a lot with the house and go out and do it ourselves,” she joked.
“We’ve had this vision of doing it ourselves, and now we’ve got this amazing piece of glass that’s been made by us.”
