For Christmas this year my parents bought us a new front door to replace the original wooden door. The door looked more like a back door/barn door than a front door and was not very well sealed.
We decided to have someone come and install the door for us since having a gaping hole in the front of the house is not something we wanted to risk if something went wrong or we didn't have the right tools/materials.
We love how the new door looks and it isn't even painted yet. We'll wait until warmer weather in the spring when we can have to door open to paint it.
It's a fiberglass door from Therma-Tru. Fiberglass seems to be the most widely available and recommended material over wood and steel and we are very pleased with our new door.
Andy decided to splurge and go with an oil-rubbed bronze knob and handle from Baldwin brass.
We love the new hardware too and now all of the knobs and fixtures in the foyer match!
