Our New Front Door!

After the last month of working around the plaster where the front door is, we finally took it down and dun dun dun dun dun duuuuuuuuun! We have a front door! Well, almost. We have a hole for a front door. But you guys know how excited I get about holes in the building so TA DA!

It took about 5.5 hours longer than we thought it would, but just like everything at the Merc, it might not be straight but that thing will last through the apocalypse.

Speaking of apocalypse, can you believe how much better the brick looks?

Its definitely not perfect, but man oh man doesn’t it look so much better?!

Court got the paint cleaned out of all of the lines, so now its my turn to step in and start repointing/regrouting it. I’m pretty sure once that is done its going to look as good as it ever has.

Big things are happening this week, can’t wait to tell you guys all about it!!

How To Install a Salvaged Door with Antique Hinges

We love architectural salvage! But sometimes making something old fit in something new can be a challenge. 

Over the years we've worked to install various old architectural salvage items in our home. From transom windows to doors and hinges to locks, using old materials in your renovation not only adds character you just can't get from new products, it can also make a renovation look appropriate in an old home, like it's always been that way. 

For example, our entry hall before and after, with reproduction mouldings, a salvaged leaded glass hardware, and minor reconfiguration.
