Really quite pleased with this project. Designed by Moulton Custom Door. Set a new record for low headroom installation: approximately 5". A barn style door on an old farm house, with not only a custom design, but false hinges and hardware replaced a solid white door.

The door was unavilable in a high R, which is why we got the job to build it in an R20. Built as stain grade finish by others. The garage was heated which was one reason they wanted to have a high R value. Higher insulation in a door...

Doors delivered in primer. Glass is thermopane to cut down on condensation on these R6 doors. Not all the doors on this new building have windows, but the design repeats through both the doors with glass and without. Old or new construction, every building deserves to put its best face...

One of our favorite projects, this design was a collaboration between myself and the owner. The doors include bird netting between the base section and the water. The installation is full vertical to roof line, so as not to interfere with the gantry cranes for lifting the boats out...

Removed a flush mounted steel rollup door. In my opinion, our door makes the whole building really pop! Great owner, a pleasure to work with. Designed by MCD. The previous door was a simple flush steel rollup door that didn't give the building much character. With the new door installed...

A combination of Royal Cedar Background and Clear Mahogany frame work detail create a look reminiscent of the Shoji style doors used in traditional Oriental homes. The design was a collaboration between the owner and Andrew Sherry Architects of New York. Inside is Douglas Fir with section reinforcing struts...

Double covered with matching interiors to the exterior design. Once again, sectional reinforcement has become an internal component of the door so as not to show on the back side. The 1" low E Glass keeps the condensation down to a minimum. As seen in the photo above, despite...

This design was a collaboration between the owners and myself. This was the lady of the house's project and was a wonderful person to work with. FJ Fortune and Company were the general contractors on this extensive remodel. Matching the diamonds of the windows upstairs was important as well...

Designed by the owner / contractor these R18 doors give a very classic look to this beautiful barn while having the modern convenience of an overhead door. We placed the springs and much of the mechanical aspects of the door above the windows to keep a clean look.

Looks like it slides, but it lifts: a play on a traditional style barn door that goes overhead rather than swinging open.  This was the customer's design. It is an R16 door. The windows will fit a standard 24" section.

These are approximately an R9 door. The customer came up with the design. The track is vertical to the roof line. The operator is Lift Master's new 3800 side mount operator for high lifted of full vertical doors. As seen in the photo above, these doors required some special consideration...

When the customer designed his building, he included in the plans these custom doors. The design harkens to some of the traditional swing doors found all over New England. They are an R18-20. Small rear door is a high lifted.

A previous customer was so taken with the door we did on his home he hired us to put two doors on his new store. Together with our door and high lifted track it makes for a farmer's market feel to this area of the store where local produce is...
