of the unexpected. For many homeown- ers, moving a door from a childhood home or a favorite summer cottage brings an element of the familiar to a new place and makes it distinctly their own.


“You might not be able to move your grandmother’s house,” says designer Mitch Wise of Mitch Wise Design, “but if you can bring a door, you bring a memory.”


Wise remembers doors that he ad-


mired as a child. Tey once flanked the showroom at the Green Bay Broadway Chevrolet Garage. Tirty years later, when refurbishing his 1920s Door County home, he was lucky enough to purchase the doors via a salvage yard and use them to turn his single-car attached garage into a multi-purpose room: a us- able winter garage and an open-air sum- mer porch.


“I was thrilled to get my hands on


these doors,” he says. “Even after all these years, they are solid. Teir dings and worn areas add character and tex- ture. I like that they came with a story.”


According to Mark Struck, custom homebuilder, the front door is one of the most critical elements of a house.


“It’s important to work with hom-


eowners to create an entryway that’s personal. Approaching a home for the first time is like meeting someone new,” Struck said. “Te front door provides an inkling of what’s inside. If you like what’s there, you’ll want to return.”


Te same can be said for Door Coun-


ty. No longer known for churning wa- ters and dangerous passages, nowadays our doors welcome you into coffee shops, farm markets, art galleries, the- aters and homes – doors you want to return to again and again.
