Edifice Door 1
Early Fanlight and Surround – Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia.

Old doors have been given a bad rap (excuse the pun) for a long time! The removal of old doors (not unlike wood windows) can significantly reduce or destroy the character and authenticity of a traditional home. The door is the first thing that greets the owner and visitors alike. The warmth and character of an old wood door – specifically one which denotes the very design style it was intended for – should be kept and restored at all costs. Its removal and replacement with a modern insulated doors with its flat, uninspired panels which scream “fake”, is a abomination to your traditional house. We hope the following grouping of amazing doors and surrounds will help inspire you to restore your own original doors or bring back original details. Enjoy…
