The Cross House
This image thrills me.
You see, the doors just came back from the Door Hospital. They underwent a veneer repair, sanding, staining, and refinishing. I was terrified that they would not survive the anesthetic.
But they are back! And GORGEOUS!
Thank you, Dr. Doug!!!!!
The Cross House has two sets of entry doors. This gorgeous pair, and an inner set of mostly glass. I just read a story which stated that back when a house like mine was built, it was understood that if the outer doors where closed, the family was not receiving. If they were open, the family was receiving. Today, nobody thinks about subtle receiving distinctions but in 1894 everybody did
NOTE: Things still to do:
1) Paint porch ceiling and door sill.
2) Install matching porch light to left of door.
3) Remove electric outlets above porch light.
