A door provides protection and helps to set a tone for a home. That door whispers curb appeal and welcomes inhabitants and guests alike. Elements found in Wood House Carpentry custom doors such as solid cores, mortise and tenon joints, decorative trim and high-quality materials combine to equal function and beauty enhancing the comfort and style of a home. The opportunity for a first impression comes but once — and the door can either say common or exceptional before it even opens its hinges. Wood House Carpentry believes in exceptional.
