build new front door

front door

need a new front door, no one made a prefab that fit so i built what i needed

door size was bigger than any single door option. i had to rebuild mine with an off the shelf door & rebuilt sidelights. in removing the old door found wood rot. it was cut out & replaced with new pt wood.

  1. bought a standard steel front door in frame
  2. salvaged from old door frame the sidelight glazing
  3. built new sidelight frames & installed glazing
  4. installed the sidelights, then the door
  5. added final trim as well as flashing
