Question on hardware - Really incredible door! brilliant really. I'm in Canada although in the Okanagan and in grape growing country winter is still a consideration.. did you design in any weather proofing? also I'm trying to locate the pivot hardware.. would you recall which brand you used? the weight must be huge.. great door! thank you for posting

This door was custom designed, and custom built - one of a kind. The pivot hinge hardware is widely available.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Your Doors: Make a Grand Entrance
Choose a door with a custom design to give it a dash of personality that your neighbors will surely envy.
Scheer & Co. added this to 16 Dream Doors
This door is fabulous for its monumental size and artistic inlay.
Houzz added this to Pivot Door
Traditional swinging doors rely on hinges for their movement, which eventually warps the door or wears out the hinges. Pivoting doors rest on a single shaft, reducing strain on both the door and the hardware.
Explore a pivot and slide. "This door is solid maple and was hand built onsite by a carpenter to my specification," says Mark Silva of Silva Studios Architecture. "Plugs on the edge of the door cover threaded-steel rods that run through the laminated planks of maple to hold it together, and make for a solid door that works with pivot hardware."
Samantha Schoech added this to 15 Front Doors With Personality
This one-of-a-kind door on pivot hinges is the first statement this house makes. And it is a big one.
