Agree, 99% of the time a custom door cost about double the cost of a standard door. Sometimes you got to do it though.

We got a custom door because of the size of the opening. If we had gone with big manufacturer, it would have been major reworking the opening with sidelights and fill. I don't recall any of the specifics, except that it wasn't significantly more expensive than all the modifications we would have to do, and this way we got what we wanted, too.
