Is this a wood door? - How can the door be treated to prevent weathering or warping? By the way, I love it.

If you like the thicker door look and want the wood exterior not to warp you use a standard metal insulated door and laminate the additional wood on either side. The inset panel can be 1/4 plywood. Glazing: the grid can be square stock and add standard moldings to create glass stop on either side. (don't forget to use expanstion block under the glass) The picture is for an over sized 3'6" door which could use a 3'0" metal door as the core and a 6" wide board on the lock side. Note: most metal door blacks can be at a door shop that sell them, a sheet-metal shop, or self cut with a metal cutting blade added to a stand field saw.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Common Fig
Distinguishing traits. These trees are known for the delicious figs, one of the world's first cultivated fruits on record.The tree has a very full form; it's usually about as wide as it is high. You can prune it to be more treelike or more shrublike, depending on your preferences. The fig tree also has very large palmate leaves with three or five lobes. The leaves grow to about 10 inches long by 8 inches wide.When to plant: Fall or spring
Infuse your garden with a lively, free-spirited attitude. I love this "doorway" that connects a garden to its adjacent orchard. Visitors are lured by the idea of exploration — to discover what's hidden just beyond this periwinkle-blue garden door. The journey promises a touch of intrigue, a memorable experience from beginning to end. Use imagination to change the predictable into the poetic. When a garden displays a spontaneous mood, whether by intent or by happenstance, when artistic freedom is encouraged and design rules are broken, we are drawn to the appealing results.
Paintbox Garden added this to Artful Salvage: Old Doors Decorate the Garden
What can color do to a garden room? A lot. This sky-blue door in a Santa Barbara, California, garden is definitely an attention grabber amid the lush green foliage.Removing glass panes from your salvage piece will make it safe and also allow plant to weave through the openings. Without a frame, a door can be stationary. Large, heavy doors like this are better used in this way.
