More Doors from "The Haul"

The demolished duplex had classic Craftsman five panel doors.  Many of them had the original hardware.  And some had an extra door knob of the contemporary kind -- is it really so hard to replace a door knob that you would just add a second one?

All in all, we now have ten of these doors in our basement.  They range in size from 24 inches to 36 inches.  We plan to reframe the doorways of some of the doors in the basement, so we can use all of these.

In what is becoming a familiar statement, Rob started to strip one, so we know it's douglas fir.  And the hardware is gorgeous.

Ultimately, we'll be taking all of these to Azusa to get stripped, just like the cabinet doors.

Best of all, when Rob was pulling these from the house, the guy we think took our shower set came by and asked if he could have them.  Rob had already claimed all of them.  Even though it's petty, that felt really good!
