We went back to Historic Albany Foundation (a not-for-profit historic preservation society that sells donated salvage materials to support their preservation activities) to grab the doors we'd spotted last week. Fortunately they were still there - we hadn't put a hold on them or anything because we just weren't sure they would work. With some modifications to the door plans, we figured out that they wouldn't just work, they'd be awesome!
We bought two doors that were from the Albany courthouse. 7 1/2 feet tall by 40 inches wide and 1 3/4 inches thick. Solid oak, stained dark, and wonderful.

Did I mention the fun stuff has started?!?
