I have been enthralled by Greene & Greene especially since our fantastic visit to Pasadena in 2008 during Craftsman Weekend. The inspiration for our front door came from the screen door between the upstairs bedroom and sleeping porch in Gamble House.

That’s a Great looking entrance.

Love the G&G ‘Cloud’ accents and the angles of the 6 lights makes it very unique.

Very well executed and a fine ‘Fit and Finish’.

Love G & G… We live near there and love the Gamble house. Your door is beautiful. Well done.

The door came out really nice. We wouldn’t complain if you added some detail shots and close-ups.

Great looking front door! Lucky you, getting to tour the Gamble House—nice way to bring a piece of it to your house!

Looks really nice. I like to see a picture from the outside at night with the lights on.

Thanks for the comments. I’ll try the outside night time shot. Actually there are no special details unlike the furniture I make following Darrel Peart’s course and books. The only difference between this and a traditional entrance door is the cloud lift and shape of the lites.

This is something that I’ll need to do for my home some day. We could use a new front door.

Well done!
