One of the most necessary repairs at my old house was the replacement of the front door. It was a charming and original dutch door but it was deteriorated, it had a ton of mismatch hardware on the interior, cracked window panes and the icing was a storm door put on maybe in the 90s.
I decided early on that I wanted to change the top transom to a rectangular shape rather than the existing half circle. After ordering a door from Tucker for the Grout Cottage project I decided both this new door from them as well.
I needed a little inspiration and after combing through and pinning so many doors I landed on this home designed by LA designer collaborative Commune. The exterior trim went perfectly with the door and sidelights that I chose.
So after deciding on a design, the big day came when the crew pulled that old door out and made a giant hole in the living room for a few hours. The replacement on the interior and exterior took about two days.
