A New Douglas Fir Front Door

With outside of the house finally painted it was time to replace front door. I wanted a styled that was a cross between bungalow and craftsman style. This is the door I selected.
Douglas Fir Front Door

I went with douglas fir as it was somewhat less expensive and matched the interior woodwork. I used a walnut stain and satin polyurethane finish.  I used an Emtek lockset – it’s looks good but the locking mechanism and latch are sufficient but not great.

Overall I am pleased. I think the door makes a huge difference on the houses curb appeal.
