by Deborah Holmes, Ebricks.com
Your home's interior reflects your personality. So why settle for passage doors that look like they all came from the same assembly line?

This custom millworks has a catalog of solid wood doors in a variety of stain- and paint-grade woods including ash, cherry, maple, mahogany, oak, pine, ash and poplar.

Available in one to six panels with arched or square tops, the doors fit a variety of architectural styles. But if you don't see what you like, the company will create a custom door, or match an existing door.

Shown here is a four panel arched top "County" door.

Doors come unfinished and lightly sanded. Wood needs more care than composite doors. Doors need to be finished within a couple of days of delivery. They must be stored dry and flat to prevent warping before installation. All cut sides, including cutouts made for door knobs, must be finished to prevent swelling from ambient moisture.

If all that's a little daunting for you, keep in mind that many houses 150 years old or more have their original wooden doors.

Doors can purchased prehung with jambs, stops and prep for hinges and locksets for an additional $40 to $70.
