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.
