Carriage Doors

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.
