Thank you for visiting our exterior & front door design page.
These images represent some of the styles and designs we offer. Included are many classic Craftsman and Mission
style designs as well as some rather unique doors inspired by the work of the Greene brothers, Limbert, Harvey Ellis,
CR Mackintosh and others. All of these doors are constructed using traditional haunched mortise & tenon joinery.
As with all of our products these designs can be modified to suit your particular requirements.

Since we handcraft all of these doors you are not limited to specific standard sizes.

Exterior Doors
Please note: All of our exterior doors feature a full 5 1/2" wide stile as standard. This is sized specifically to allow commonly available 2 3/4" set back lock sets
to be installed in the center of the stile rather than offset as required with many commercial products. Other stile widths are available upon request. Since these doors are subject to exposure to the elements they are only made using wood species which are suitable for this application.
Some of the choices include : Quarter sawn white oak, Sipo Mahogany, Vertical Douglas fir, Redwood, & Cherry.
Glazing options range from clear single pane tempered glass or laminated safety glass to insulated dual pane glass and custom leaded glass designs.
 Please call us to discuss your requirements.
