ABOUT OUR DOORS
At RusticRoo Designs, we handcraft custom barn doors made exactly to your specifications. With our background in restoration carpentry, our barn doors are made just as they were hundreds of years ago. Choose your door's exact size, design, and finish, creating a completely unique and personal home design feature. Bring us your ideas and we will work with you to bring them to life!
Our doors are made of knotty pine, sourced from local lumber yards. We love using knotty pine as it is cost effective, allowing us to create a unique home accent piece for you at an affordable price, and it looks phenomenal with wood stain applied. The knots in the wood also add to the uniqueness and rustic character of our doors. Upon request, we can also use reclaimed wood, poplar, or a wide variety of other wood types if your design calls for it. Let us know what you have in mind, and we will gladly provide you with a price estimate.
Should you wish to have your door painted rather than stained, we recommend the use of poplar as this wood is smooth with little to no knots, and takes paint very well.
Our doors start at $350 for a knotty pine door, with a standard design, that is up to 3 feet wide (36'') and 8 feet tall (96''). This includes hand-application of the Minwax Wood Finish stain (http://www.minwax.com/wood-products/stains-color-guide/) or ZAR oil-based stain (http://www.zar.com/#menu-item-111) of your choice. If there is a certain stain color or particular brand that you would like to use instead, please let us know and we are happy to accommodate your selection.
For doors larger than 3 feet (36’’) wide by 8 feet (96’’) tall, or for more complex designs, or if you wish to have your door painted rather than stained, please contact us for pricing details.
Our doors are typically finished only on one side, meaning only one side of the door is stained, while the back side remains unfinished. Of course we are happy to also finish the back side of the door if your installation calls for it, for an additional $55 for standard size doors, or $75 for larger doors. We recommend finishing both sides of the door if the product will be used in any area of your home where both sides of the door will be visible.
Typically, our doors are not made with a groove in the bottom of the door to accommodate a guide. We do not include the groove as a standard feature as certain installations and/or hardware options do not call for it. If you’d prefer to have one installed, please let us know and we will gladly cut one in for you for an additional $15.
Hardware (track, handle, etc.) is not included, but we are happy to field any questions that you may have during your selection process. There is a wide range of hardware options available online, across various price points; the possibilities are endless!
Our doors are secured together through a technique called "clinching" by which the nails are first driven through the face of the board, then the point of the nail that is sticking out on the back is bent over and driven back into the wood. Clinching provides remarkable strength and gives the door a truly rustic look.
Alternatively, we can use brass screws which are drilled in from the back of the door and are not visible from the front (design side) of the door.
LEAD TIME & SHIPPING
Our typical lead time is 4-6 weeks, but rush orders can be accommodated upon request for an additional fee. But please check with us for the most up to date production time for your order.
Shipping costs for our doors are variable as each of our doors are unique in size and weight; but if you can provide us with your desired door size and your shipping zip code, we will happily provide you with a shipping cost estimate prior to purchase. If you are in the Boston and/or New England area, delivery or pick up can be arranged.
Feel free to message us via Etsy, or email us directly at RusticRooDesigns [!at] gmail.com. We look forward to working with you!
[**Please note, the door featured in this listing is an example of a project we have done. It is a Half-X Brace design with a border, with whitewash stain and additional sanding for a more weathered look. Clinch nails were used as fasteners.]
