Had it been me I would have put the jamb in vertical instead of horizontal.

Is that a “gnome door” or is it life size??? ;^)

Pretty cool door. You just said “installed this”. Did you build it and install it or buy it and install it? I am assuming that since you posted it under the tag_ steam bent laminations that you built it. If so, good on ya! If not, still good on ya for tackling the install.

life size….I steamed and laminated the jamb The jamb is actually 86” high, had to notch the header a tad

Bottom weather strip is kinda neat. When you close the door, a little bolt touches the jamb and releases a bottom weather strip that rops down on the threshold. open the door, it springs up

Nary a sprig of light visible. ie tight seal. Good on a north facing prairie door!

Clients happy, 4 other jobs added.

Only downside is that the springback on the interior moulding laminations was too much, have to redo them.

Such is life.

Damn fine door. It will look great once you get all the siding on. Look like a good days work.
