Inspiration for a country single front door remodel in Boston with white walls and a black front door

Hillside Farmhouse

Farmhouse Entry, Boston

Hillside Farmhouse sits on a steep East-sloping hill. We set it across the slope, which allowed us to separate the site into a public, arrival side to the North and a private, garden side to the South. The house becomes the long wall, one room wide, that organizes the site into its two parts. The garage wing, running perpendicularly to the main house, forms a courtyard at the front door. Cars driving in are welcomed by the wide front portico and interlocking stair tower. On the opposite side, under a parade of dormers, the Dining Room saddle-bags into the garden, providing views to the South and East. Its generous overhang keeps out the hot summer sun, but brings in the winter sun. The house is a hybrid of ‘farm house’ and ‘country house’. It simultaneously relates to the active contiguous farm and the classical imagery prevalent in New England architecture. Photography by Robert Benson and Brian Tetrault

    I don't know who makes that but I do know that the company I work for ... Upstate Door Inc. ... in Warsaw, NY makes custom wood doors and screen/storm doors exactly like that! Check our our Houzz page or our website UpstateDoor.com

7. Match the entry door. Don't hide some of the nice features of the main door. Instead, make sure the structure...

Screen door vs Dutch door. Is that tacky?
