Exterior Door

200703020640We ordered our back door yesterday. We really should have ordered it some time ago, but I guess better late than never. We got it through a local company called Quality Doors, and it is actually being made at a local mill. The picture to the left is not exactly what it will look like, but it's a pretty good representation. We got a full light maple door with square sticking. That means that it has the big window, is made out of solid maple, and doesn't have any weird trim pieces around the glass, just nice and square. I think that the maple will match the baltic birch that we are using for our cabinetry closer than a birch door, plus it was a little cheaper. Total price built, and pre-hung on a maple jam with satin hinges was $600. Not too shabby at all. I will have to put a spar urethane on it myself to protect it, but that will be easy. Perhaps the best part of it is that they are only 4 weeks out, which is a lot better than some of the other options that we were looking at.

Please excuse me while I pay some bills...
