Fabulous! Are the luan doors solid core? Where did you buy them? I'm in Martinez and re-remodeling a 1964 ranch. Where did you take the old doors? Any more interior door photos? Love watching your projects! Thanks.

hi sarah: the luan interior doors are hollow core (as original) and are available everywhere... even the big box stores. we ordered our from lowes, but these came from a local shop. in martinez, check ashby on port chicago. the doors themselves (slab only) should cost under $50/door.

the old doors went to the dump thanks to the door shop (for a small fee, of course). you could also take them to the martinez or pittsburg dumps yourself.

if you get a new front door, make sure to ask your door guy (not @ the bog boxes) about a "5 inch backset" which places the knob a bit further from the edge. a nice, period-appropiate touch. we've put a 5in backset on every exterior door I've installed... over a half-dozen at this point.
