Hated the sliding glass door. The glass was coming out of the frame and I had a curtain to keep heating, cooling environment separate. Had to keep door open for cats to access their litter box. Now I have more wall space on the living room side; just need to find something I like to hang there. Cracking the pocket door a bit for the cats (still can’t find a cat door thin enough for the pocket door), keeps the back AC in the garage and provides privacy for grandchildren sleepovers.

Next step is to replace the flooring and finish painting all the “wood” white. Also, walls are being painted gray.
