Topic “Dynamite Doors”

Wanna put some style underfoot! Floors are such an integral part of a home, so liven up that living room and treat yourself to that tiled entranceway! Check here for ideas and post if you've created something cool!

1912 Salvaged glass "barn" door

This door was nearly unusable as a standard door. The bottom was nearly completely rotted out when we got it. Dean Amdahl did what we like to call surgery on the bottom of the door. It is mounted to 1918 pocket door track we salvaged from a house that was knocked over to make way for a new off-ramp at the Hwy I-25 and 66 exit.

Hotel in Scotland

This was a door at a hotel in Scotland. The inside was quite modernized, but this door had some history...
