This is a custom door designed to accommodate the pitch of the roof of the adjacent structure. It is really just a normal door with a section with the appropriate angle sliced off. You just need to be careful not to slice too much, because you need the hinge side to be intact.

What color did you use on the floors in this room? - Was it a stain or paint and did you seal it? Thanks!

The paint in this house is from the Donald Kaufman Color collection (by Pratt & Lambert). The floors in this room are DKC-48. I believe it is just a paint finish suitable for floors.

Perhaps the overall is close to 6 inches, but their is only a one inch arm from the round monopoint housing.
Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

To reach this guest room space, one needs to ascend the staircase off the kitchen/dining room (there were always two staircases in this house). The staircase entered from the dining room/kitchen leads up here to the guest room and the homeowner's studio (which is through that cute little angled door that follows the roofline of the garage form of the house). "By stepping each form back you get nice corners you can fill," Smith says. If you look back at the second picture in this ideabook, you'll get a good idea of how this works from the exterior. Whenever you spy a diagonal inside this house, it helps you read a roofline or the line of a staircase.The thick bookshelf on the left makes the most of what is almost always a wasted space, the space above a radiator. The radiator is encased in a perforated cabinet on the bottom of the shelf.Paint: DKC-22 latex in eggshell finish, Donald Kaufman Color Collection (by Pratt & Lambert)
