Doors Galore

This house not only has a lot of walls, it also has many, many doors: solid wood doors, doors with windows, interior double French doors, exterior double French doors, an interior single French door, a swinging door, thick folding doors…  By the numbers, there are seven exterior doors (three regular doors and four double French doors). That includes the standard front door and basic back door (both red, by the way).

Interior doors total 20! That makes 27 exterior and interior doors!! Talk about a lot of hinges!  Four of the interior doors are double French doors and there is one single French door.

The swinging door from the kitchen is a fun one – think restaurant-style.

The windowed door from the back porch to the kitchen and the basement door are full of character as well.  Each of the three panels of the heavy folding doors separating the living room from the dining room are approximately 2.5 inches thick.  When folded together, they are almost nine inches thick. This reflects the thickness of the door moulding on that interior wall.

Of course, with all of these doors, a variety of door knobs can be found.  I love the old fashioned glass ones!

Now if we can just keep these doors and knobs functional in order to preserve all that character!
