Cypress Entry Doors

Traditional Cypress entry; these exterior doors are oversized to fit the scale of this large stone house. I've always thought it a shame that so many large new homes use 'builder' quality doors for their entry. These doors are almost 8' high, and each about 3' wide, proportioned to the grandeur of the building. The raised panels have a styrofoam SM core sandwiched between 3/4" cypress panels for thermal efficiency. The panels match top to bottom on each door. The door frames have an oak core, with the 1/4 cypress skin epoxied on. The skins are book matched onto faces. The entry and doors have an oil finish to heighten the colour.

Dimensions: about 9 1/2' wide 8' high (3000x2440mm)
