Mountain Contemporary Front Door

Mountain Contemporary Front Door

Custom Made Mountain Contemporary Front Door

This Mountain Contemporary door is customized to fit the 42” wide by 94” tall opening.  The frame of the door is stained to match the trim of the house and the Doug Fir panels are stained to match the color of the Doug Fir Timber framing throughout the house.

The inspiration for the door came from the Timber Framing featured throughout the house.  This wasn’t your ordinary timber framing with straight beams and standard 45° angled supports.  The main supporting vertical beams are angled as well with supports set at arbitrary angles to add a decorative look.  The main support beams are held in place on angle with decorative metal brackets bolted to the floor.

When I designed the door I made the stiles of the door tapered to mimic the angle of the vertical support beams, and threw in a few angled cross braces to mimic the cross braces intersecting the main support beams.  Then to bring in the decorative element of the steel supports, I picked my favorite one (picture in the gallery above).  I used the the dividing cross hatches, flipped it upside down and added that design element to the top of the door.

It is one of my favorite things I have designed, which was heavily influenced by the architecture of the building, so it fits in perfectly.
