Hi- we actually re-used the original 1848 bricks that were removed from the rear wall when we created the large opening into the addition so we didn't purchase anything.

Hi- It was in the house and was probably original plaster detailing from the 1840s or 1850s.

These doors are from Marvin. They are 'clad'- i.e. aluminum wrapped over wood, so they are wood on the interior side and aluminum on the exterior.
