Door Envy


You ever think about doors? According to the ALL KNOWING Wikipedia, the earliest recorded doors appear in the paintings of Egyptian tombs, which show them as single or double doors, each of a single piece of wood. People may have believed these were doors to the afterlife, and some included designs of the afterlife. In Egypt, where the climate is intensely dry, doors were not framed against warping, but in Missouri, we require framed doors—The most ancient doors were made of timber, such as those referred to in the Biblical depiction of King Solomon's temple being in olive wood, which were carved and overlaid with gold. Archaeologists near Zürich, Switzerland, have found two doors over 5,000 years old. That's an old door.


With our door, curiosity sparked, we headed over to HOODS Discount Home Center, the area's only custom door shop. When we showed up, we found Chris Bullis working on a new door with a doggy door added. I had no idea that you could get custom doors made to order.
