Patriot Side Light Doors Patriot

This main entry door with side lights faces due west. Nothing could stop the blinding sun from blasting into the home every afternoon until this pair of frame-and-panel doors was custom made for the narrow windows and installed. The windows had previously been covered with satin sheen clear vinyl window film and wore the traditional see-through curtain panels. Black curtains worked somewhat, but looked terrible. Custom blinds would not have shut-out enough light. The doors are made of basswood and painted to match the entry door; they are held closed with rare earth magnets. They can be left in the open position to allow morning light to illuminate the colorful window film that was a part of this project as well.
