Re-use of a beautiful old door

Here is a photo from a recent project with an old door hung on sliding door hardware.  I sent the client on a mission to find a cool old oversized door from a salvage yard in Vermont.  This is what he came up with.  Note also the concrete floor and the colorful slate floor and exposed hemlock ceiling joists.  All are examples of what the owners brought into the project and emphasize the success of a collaborative approach to design.

    I’m a woodworker re-building and retrofitting an 1830’s style blacksmith shop upstate New York. I’ve been using all kinds of doors, old and new,with glass and without throughout the loft-like structure. Needless to say I have lots of wood in the house. Nice to see your use of the door-partition. Pictures on request.
