Tom spends many of his weekends putting his skills to work for his family. His daughter and her husband bought a house with a rotting back deck that had serious weatherproofing issues.

They wanted a back door that wouldn’t leak heat as badly in the winter, so we reduced the opening from a generous eight feet to a more standard 6.
