I visited the shop today to check on the status of the doors. The carpenters were able to work some during the the pause, so there was a lot of progress.
Besides the double doors, the door jamb and transom will be replaced as well. I considered keeping the existing jamb and transom, but they were not in great shape and covered in layers and layers of paint.
I originally intended to paint the doors black, but decided to stain them instead. I figured I could always paint the doors in the future if I change my mind, but that it would be harder to strip the paint to stain the wood. Below are the stain colors I was considering (I decided to go with the one circled in red).brownstone doors, Custom doors, Wood doors
