I was poking around the internet last night, and bounced right into this great new company, Crestview Doors, based in Austin, Texas.
A very cool story of a couple working to renovate their mid century home. They couldn’t find the right front door ala one down the street – so they started their own company.
Aren’t these beautiful? They’re solid wood, double-paned glass, and based on classic designs that were abundantly available in the post war years. There are a bunch more on their website, along with a great graphic that helps you choose a door based on your home’s decade of construction. For example, the door to the far right — the “Grover” model — was probably the most common door on 40s, 50s and 60s ranches. (Note, if you’ve got a colonial exterior, like I do, this kind of modern style door is probably not the way to go.)
You only have one chance to make a good impression — start with your front door! This looks like a great resource. Thank you, Crestview Doors!
