Barn Door in San Jose

Categories:Installation jobs

Barn doors are a noteworthy option to consider when faced with a large passage opening.  Although not suitable for every occasion, a barn door can add distinctive character to a room where a passageway opening has plenty of unused wall space on at least one side.

That was the case in a San Jose home where we recently installed a set of barn doors.  The opening was more than 8 ft wide, making it unsuitable for conventional doors, so the homeowner decided to go with the exotic double-barn door option, with stainless steel tracks.  Because of the large opening, we ordered custom-made over-sized barn doors from TruStile.

As you can see from the pictures below, the results were amazing.

Walnut Doors in Sunnyvale

Categories:Installation jobs

Yesterday we had an opportunity to install Walnut doors in an older home in Sunnyvale.  Walnut is a rare wood prized for its beauty, and we don’t often have an opportunity to work with it.  The doors were installed in an Eichler-style home built in the 1970′s, filled with lots of light.  Manufactured by TruStile, these walnut doors beautifully accentuated the character of the Eichler home.  Here are some pictures taken shortly after we were done:

New Doors for Newly-Purchased Home in San Jose

Categories:Installation jobs

A substantial portion of our customers have recently been involved in the real estate market, either as home buyers or sellers.  Buyers of new homes often want new doors that suit their personal taste; sellers often replace older doors to make their homes more attractive in the market.

This past week we replaced about 20 doors in a San Jose home recently purchased by the customer.  They chose a two-panel Cambridge style design with stylish locksets made by EMTEK.  All doors were solid core.  Since the home was relatively new, the door jambs and casing were all in great condition, and thus we were able to retrofit all of the new doors into the existing jambs.  Here are the pictures.

July Employee of the Month

Categories:Company events

Our July employee of the month is Matt Vargas.  Matt joined us just earlier this year and he quickly learned how to operate the CNC machine used to cut doors.  But he has not been content with just working at the Mountain View shop.  Matt has also picked up the skills to install interior doors and closet doors.  After working only a few months, Matt’s flexibility and willingness to learn has already made him an extremely valuable resource to the Company.   Congratulations and thank you Matt!!!

In a Mountain View neighborhood we recently had an opportunity to install some 3-panel Craftsman doors.  These attractively-priced doors fit the bucolic character of the home.  Since the home was located near our Mountain View shop, we were able to dash over to take some quick pictures, which are posted below:

Cherry Doors from TruStile

Categories:Installation jobs

This past week we had a chance to install new TruStile doors made from cherry.  The home was a typical San Jose dwelling in the Almaden Valley constructed in the 1970′s.  The homeowners had resolved to upgrade their home, and they decided to start by replacing their old original hollow doors with these premium-quality woodgrain cherrywood doors.  Here are a few photos of the door after they were installed.  Over the next few months and beyond, the wood grain in these doors will darken, gradually giving the doors more pronounced texture, and further enhancing their beauty.
