52 Weeks of Home : Week 30 : Interior Doors

I’ve known this forever, but the feeling gets stronger everyday – I like rooms. I don’t like open-concept houses, and I cringe when people knock down walls on TV – usually in older homes that were really well-designed to begin with. Totally my opinion, and I get why other people feel otherwise. But I love defined rooms, with defined spaces, with a purpose for each room.

So basically, I like doors. 🙂

Week 30 : Interior Doors 

Show us your Pocket Doors, French Doors, Paneled Doors, Closet Doors, Swing Doors….

I have to admit – with band camp this week (we’re exhausted), this is going to be a SHORT post, but for my post this week, I wanted to show you my absolute FAVORITE door in the house : the pocket door between the Entrance Hall, and the Dining Room. It is GIGANTIC. It’s 5′ wide, and so heavy, and I can’t believe it’s in as good of a shape as it is!!!! It’s my favorite. Some of the hardware is missing, but we have some to add to it sometime.

Here’s the list (also in pdf format : 52 Weeks of Home), of all the challenges for each week :


  1. I feel the same way! I love that you can’t see my kitchen from the other rooms and hate it when they take an old house and make it one big open room! I have a hard time watching some of those shows. In a couple years the trend will be separate rooms, lol!

  2. I heartily agree! Modern houses make me cringe. Today I was in an old house that has been repurposed into retail space. The guy ahead of me in line was a contractor. We were discussing how beautiful the house was. It has not been “trashed”, all the original woodwork is still in place, although it has been painted, and all the
    walls are intact. He was sad that an old house he is working on has had a wall removed.

  3. I once lived in a house that was all open except for the bedrooms and bathrooms. And the floor was tile, so every little sound carried. When we brought our newborn home, we didn’t need a baby monitor. We could hear every sound she made, wherever she was in the house. Never again.

    Those doors are beautiful. And solid. I bet you can’t hear much when they are closed.

  4. So I sat down last week while on vacation and over a few days I read your entire blog – there are many details that I enjoyed, with your preferences to remodeling being one of the enjoyments and mainly that the remodeling is being completed on a working people timeline. Not millionaire’s showing how it can be done in a few weeks and appear to be so belabored.
    Thanks for sharing your remodeling of homes with us and I look forward to your future posts.

    **Halloween is coming up, did you purchase more skeletons?” 🙂
