Front Door

Trying to figure out the front door configuration. We really hate the current door – a cheap nasty thing from Home Depot with a worn out lock. I love the idea of a solid door with glass either side, or one side. B. wants louvers for ventilation down one side – probably a good idea but ugly I think.

    LA folks always seem to go for those GIANT double front doors… you’d have to do some serious reno to get that

  2. solid with glass either side is good bc thats your current configuration- although the above set out looks v.good, it would mean a whole new frame. And for ventilation get SOMEONE to design a smart screen door that is also secure and doesn’t look like a prison. Palm springs had a good example, wrought iron in random squares.

    I also think louvres either side would look excellent, if you can find someone to make them with minimum mechanism showing, and importantly with security in mind.
