About This Course

This course will cover the use of custom wood doors for large exterior openings found on garages, car barns, pool houses, and other auxiliary spaces. Wood doors allow for broad design flexibility and function but present unique considerations for longevity, installation, and safe operation for the end user. Understanding the range of possibilities, rules, and restrictions when specifying a custom wood door in the preliminary design phase of a project can help to ensure best outcomes during the construction phase and avoid compromises in terms of design, function, and budget. The course objectives will introduce you to the most important details that should be taken into account when considering the specification of a custom wood door for a project, whether new build or renovation.
