This was a fun project, I am about 6 months late posting it but none the less, last year my sister wanted a new front door for her Salt box house on Cape Cod. As a christmas gift last year I told her I would build it for her, it just took me til July to install it. Fun story about the lumber, my sister and I grew up in Vermont, four years ago my father took down an old pine in the front yard, my uncle was able to mill the lumber up and we let it dry for 2 years, I took the lumber and used it to build the door so we each have a tie to the house. I milled all the lumber myself and ship lapped and screwed everything together on the back. She wanted to make sure there was enough light with the new setup so I decided to add the window, I dont know how I feel about it but she loved it so its not my call. This was definitely a learning project as I have never built a door before, no matter how straight forward it is.
All in all, it functions and is aesthetically pleasing.
Thanks for looking everyone!
