Can There REALLY be more door drama?

From Janelle:

After all the Front Door drama it is hard to believe that there can be more. Standard ordinary “panel” doors are just not in the master plan and we’d always figured that we’d install glass panel doors with either the full length of the door glass or panes similar to the front door.

That was before Contractor Don gave me a catalog from Trustile and pointed out Vogue Collection Model AD3030. I fell in love but when we got a quote from Door Guy Kevin (different from the Door Girls who provided the windows) my enthusiasm quickly deflated. They were crazy expensive. Kevin saw a sale slipping through his fingers, contacted his sources and was able to arrange for a local manufacturer to fabricate SIMILAR doors for us. He was careful to stress the similar so I hope they are everything that we’ve hoped and dreamed they will be. Keep your fingers crossed.

From Lewis:

Not worried at all. Everyone has a knock off of something. The only thing missing is the manufacturer name on the tag. There are a lot of skilled craftsmen out there who can look at something and duplicate it. It is only a door right?

From Janelle:

Ha! It’s never “it’s only” anything. Everything sounds so easy…..

Have you had a project that just didn’t quite live up to your vision?
