Need input on door style
We've been fixing/replacing/repainting this 1950 prairie-inspired ranch for 5 years, and now it's time to deal with the front door.
I stripped off many layers of paint, but all I found was a dingy green and impenetrable coat of primer (?) and cracked, brittle veneer. We've stripped another of the exterior doors and uncovered a lovely birch veneer on the interior side, so we were very hopeful the front door would yield a similar prize.
As we'd like to have a window on the door anyway, we're thinking that we should just replace the whole thing and not bother to try to restore it. At this point, it's got a skimpy coat of brown paint on it so as not to scare the neighbors-LOL!
The door was 84" x 36", and has been shaved down a bit in height to accommodate a wood floor that was installed by a previous owner. We can get a door custom made locally, which will save us the expense and hassle of pulling out the unit and replacing it with a standard 80" door in a new unit. The question is, what style? We'd love a mid-mod door like we see on the Crestview website (http://www.crestviewdoors.com/index.php/diy-kits), but a craftsman style might be more do-able for our door people. What do you all think?
