Charming, vintage, exterior door salvaged from an old home in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The door is made of either solid Douglas Fir or pine and was built circa 1972. There are 3 horizontal lites at the top with 3 horizontal raised panels below. All 3 windows have tempered glass, which is a great feature for an exterior door.
When most people hear "pine" they think of a cheap, weak, and soft wood. New pine hewn from 10 - 20 year old trees doesn't have the same insect-resistant, rot-resistant, or even fire-resistant qualities that old pine, hewn from trees hundreds of years old has. Old pine is also much harder and stronger than young pine.
Hardware: The door comes with 2 hinges, but no lockset. We have a good selection of period hardware--check out our eBay store.
* If you would like any of the hardware holes plugged with solid wood, please email us for a quote.
Uneven Height: The door's height was unevenly cut by 1" at some point, most likely to compensate for an old, warped floor or settling foundation. We could cut the door to an even 78", cut it shorter/narrower, or even build it up to make it taller and/or wider--email us for a quote.
Condition: The door was broken into at some point, blowing-out the lock housing. Someone repaired it using only glue from what we could tell. The repair looks strong and is holding, but unless you plan on staining and finishing the door, it would be a good idea to replace the current lock housing with a nice, fresh block of wood--email us for a quote. There is also a small break or dent right above the top hinge and a shallow crack in one of the mullions (rail between windows), which our carpenter could also repair.
Otherwise, the door is great shape with only the typical scrapes, scratches, and small nail holes which would be filled or removed during the finishing process. Whatever remains will be covered by paint or appear as a "character mark" if you choose to stain and finish.
All of the glass is intact and is in great condition with only subtle scratches.
Refinish/Repaint: We could refinish, repaint, or partially or completely strip the door to prepare it for you to repaint or refinish. See the last photos in this auction as an example of our work. Email us with a small description of what you would like done, and we'll give you a quote.
Swing: The door is currently set up to swing into a home towards the left, or away from the home towards the right. However, we can modify the door to swing in the opposite direction--email us for a quote.
Modification: We could also modify this door to fit your opening or suite your needs. We could make a frame, trim or add to the height or width, replace glass with wood or a different kind of glass, reverse the swing, plug the hardware holes, etc. Email us with a small description of what you would like done, and we'll give you a quote.
