Carriage Doors

28 Mar

Before and After pictures of new Custom Carriage Doors.

This was a facelift to an old 1920’s home with a detached garage. I designed and built both doors. They are hollow with dense foam inside for insulation. This also reduced the weight.

The entry door was also replaced with a new frame. I sanded down and stripped the old paint from the siding. Sealed with primer and painted. The final result was a huge upgrade from the old view.

    Love the look. We have the problem on a house that added the garages to the house in 1949.It’s all cinder block construction and we made a carriage door out of wood that open towards the drivewa, and closed off the other garage door ,that still has the old knee-knocker installed. . But we want a professional look. There isn’t enough headroom for an automatic door opener nor is there enough clearance for a regular garage door to be installed. We already had 5 garage door installers look at it and everyone won’t touch it.

      I wonder if it was possible to raise your walls and roof line, in order to fix that problem? I had the problem of NO custom carriage door makers. Or even a garage door company that would even attempt to make some, that didn’t involve me spending a small fortune to get some made. So I made these myself. I did however remove and replace the front header beam in the front of the garage, and the center ridge beam too. Both were undersized, and I worried the roof would fall in. And I was also able to raise the opening up, to gain more room for the doors.
