A Door. On A Diet.
You can see in the image how the door had been made wider. This was true for the other side as well. Vertical extensions had been nailed on. But why?
As the post reveals, I learned that the door was originally the door between the dressing room and closet. When these two small rooms were combined into one room in 1929 the door was made wider, and fitted into an existing opening which originally held only a curtain.
Today, I was looking at the sad door (it looks really pitiful) when an idea popped into my head.
The door needed to go on a diet, STAT!
I knocked that opening into the wall last year. There was a door there in 1894, leading into the toilet room. This was blocked over in 1929. I re-opened it to lead into a new utility closet and (drum roll, please) it needs a door!
I get such a thrill undoing badly done work.
Oh, and what about the Round Bedroom bathroom bereft of a door? I will see if Dr. Doug will make me a new one to match all the other doors. He already did one for the Sewing Room bathroom.
NOTE: I will attach to the door a note explaining where it was originally. Who knows, somebody many decades from now may reinstall it in its original location.
