front door

05/31/2011 § 2 Comments

2 weeks of researh

1 weekend of driving to find stores

1 saturday of measuring and searching, consulting with a woodworker

and learning a lot and still looking.

It’s a journey!

Here are the options we are now planning.

In the beginning, we wanted to find a salvaged arched brownstone door.  But it’s very hard to find the right size!  So, we let go of that plan, and now going with glass arch top and 2 tall rectangular doors.

Arched doors we were looking at.. seemed to almost fit, but not quite.

    It’s not too late to dive into the magical world of Eastern European doors! Ted and I are ordering our windows and doors from Europe because of their insanely good energy performance, and that means we get to peruse wacky Slovakian websites with hilarious door options.

    (Note: Our doors will look nothing like any of these — they’ll be downright boring by comparison.)

    Those EE doors are quite “modern”!! We did find the door yesterday and a woodworker who will be fixing and installing them for us!
