Cottage Bungalow Replacement Door

CottageDoor3

 

This story has got to make you scream.

The 3’0″ x7’0″ (3 foot wide x 7 foot tall) door on this cottage bungalow had been in continuous service since original installation sometime in the 1930’s. 

UNTIL some punks in 2009 destroyed it in order to steal a few hundred dollars worth of  TV’s and Laptops. ( Hey guys! Next time use the window. It’s cheaper!) (Next time the owners maybe inside with a shotgun!)

As it happens a careful examination of  available special order doors uncovered this exquisite modestly priced all wood reproduction door.

For an authentic installation I used a hand plane from the shop to dress the edge when I sized it to fit the original jamb.
