Having proper front doors in our houses is not only a blessing; it is a necessity, especially since they prevent snakes and other vermin to enter the houses. When the independent living houses were built, the doors were in good shape of course, but these wooden doors have proven not to be very suitable for the climate in Thailand. They are battered by rainwater every time it rains and scorched by the sun every time the sun comes out. The doors have been painted and varnished numerous times, but they just need too much maintenance. That is why we have replaced the wooden doors with maintenance free doors recently. The girls living in the houses are very grateful for that. At the same time, we have replaced the doors of the multipurpose room and the tool shed as well, because they required too much maintenance too. In total, we have replaced 10 doors and we don’t have to be afraid of uninvited guests anymore.
