The front door is the focal point of a house. It should be built with integrity and pleasing proportions. Through it, we welcome guests into our homes.
Doors built by The Lunenburg Furniture Co. will last over 100 years. They are constructed in the same manner as the original doors seen on 200 year old buildings. We use traditional joinery, mortice and tenon, floating panels, epoxy, and the proper choice of rot resistant wood.
We can replicate existing doors, or design new doors to meet your requirements. We build individual doors as well as pre-hung units in the jamb with all hardware and glass installed.
We take care of all shipping details, ensuring your doors will arrive safely anywhere in North America.
These doors are located at The Lunenburg School of the Arts, 151 Montague st. on the Prince st. entrance. The previous doors were garage doors, but when the building was converted into an art school the entrance needed to accommodate people, while still matching the other garage doors on the building. The design solution was to build a fixed panel, a full width entrance and a dead bolted half door, which can be opened when moving large objects.
The original entranceway to this house was split in the middle with two equally sized doors- a typical, yet impractical Victorian doorway.
My solution was to replace this with a main door on the left and a smaller door on the right that is only opened when needed.
This pre-hung unit was shipped unfinished without glass, as the customer wanted to do the finish work. This photo shows the removable, interior grill, designed for ease of glass replacement.
All parts of sash work are morticed and tenoned.
A group of friends sailed into Lunenburg harbour and went for a walk around town. They happened by my shop and one of them was building her dream house in New Jersey and wanted to commission doors. She emailed me photos of doors that appealed to her, I sent her back drawings and this is the final product. I built a crate, took care of all the shipping and brokerage details and the two Dutch doors arrived at her home, safe and sound, and were installed by her contractor.
This door is an exact reproduction from a grand, old house in Shelburne, Nova Scotia. It was built as part of a complete restoration project. The two sidelights are set up with thermo-pane glass.
The entranceway was completely assembled in shop, with all hardware and glass installed, before being shipped to the job site.
