I would definitely work to save that door. It is a very impressive craftsman style entry. It would be very difficult to replace and maintain its character. Its clear that the trim needs a lot of work and restoration, but I cannot tell from the photos what needs done on the doors themselves.

I agree with TomH. I like the door; in fact, the home is very nice. Love the use of color inside! Is that (color) done with software, or "good ole' paint?"

And what, no pictures of the lead bathroom? :)

OK...so we are going to try to restore a much of that old entryway as possible....the actual door may not be salvageable, its pretty beaten up...

the paint colors are actually done on the Benjamin Moore site, the pics are genaric pics of rooms, right now MY house has no rooms anymore, its gutted...unfortunately I cannot get pics of the leaded bathroom, 7 months pregnant and lead paint dust flying around in the house from demolition...

when i get the new pics back i will post a better pic to see if you can all see the detail better...i'll also post progress pics as i can.

thanks guys
