Does anything kindle the imagination quite like an interesting door?
They stir memories of wonderful old stories and suggest new adventures.
A well-told door is a no-fail plot device.
Doesn't everyone want to know what's behind the door?
I love to photograph doors. These examples are from various missions in San Antonio, and they inspired my interest in finding some unique doors for the lake house: doors with a bit of history, with some character and texture.
We loved the carving on this exterior door. The images seemed so appropriate for the lake: duck, fish and trees. The door on the right is one of a pair with brass inserts that we will use for the front entrance. All the exterior doors are made from Neem, the "blessed tree" of India. Part of the mahogany family, Neem trees are highly valued for a variety of reasons, including their medicinal properties.
Over the weekend we worked with Hal, our builder, measuring both the doors and the foundation slab to make sure each piece will fit perfectly into its new home. We are now waiting for the framing crew to finish up their current project so that they can start on our house next!
