More Suffield Doors – #ThursdayDoors

I’d take either one of these.

I have run through most of the doors from my doorscursion into Suffield, CT. I still have lots of locations left, but I don’t know much about them. So, I give you a gallery of interesting looking buildings and doors that I wish I new more about. What I do know is in the captions.

This post is part of Norm Frampton’s weekly blogfest known as Thursday Doors. It’s a super fun weekly gathering of door lovers from around the world. It begins with perhaps the biggest fan of all things door, Norm himself. Visit Norm’s place. Check out his doors and enjoy doors from many other cities and countries.

  1. Ok Dan, you’d have to fight me for the doors on the first and last buildings! 🤗🤗
    And the windows you love on that one house, I think you would sing a different tune if you had to wash them. Lol.

    Every building is a winner today. But the home where you would love to write a blog is just stunning. Every aspect of it. It has to be a thrill for these home owners to live in and maintain this area. My imagination runs wild picturing inside these beauties.

    Thanks for sharing this tour.

    1. The 12-over-12 window is quintessential New England, Ginger, but you’re right, I wouldn’t want to have to clean them. Worse yet, imagine painting them…it hurts my head.

      I saved that first house, with what I imagine as my writing nest, for this last post in the series. I think it’s my favorite, but those barns are giving it a good fight.

      So far, it looks like you and I and Pam want the barns. Do you think we can share?

  2. Not only are these homes so beautiful, but so is the landscaping! I could live in any of the ‘almost ordinary’ homes. Oh, the ‘interesting cottage’….that one is just waiting for the right person to fix ‘er up. Homes like these are the ones I like to drive by slowly. I wonder if the residents are used to that.

    1. I think about that when I’m standing there snapping a picture. I hope they think of it as a form of flattery and not an intrusion. I love the houses, but I think about the maintenance (especially the landscaping, because that’s not my joy), and I wonder.

  3. Hi Dan. Even just looking at the buildings and doors is fun. That white one in your feature spot is really intriguing. The first part of it makes me think of an old school house (the turret/tower part) yet it’s connected to a barn? Definitely interesting to speculate on that one. Then, that first house is the stuff of dreams for me! I could spend all day looking at the gorgeous details of that… then I guess I’d spend the night in jail — getting arrested for walking around their house staring at everything. LOL. Hugs on the wing.

    1. I have to keep reminding myself that Norm refuses to post bail for us, otherwise, I’d be poking around. It’s interesting to think about the stories these houses could tell after almost 200 years.

  4. Hi Dan – love all the houses … but I think my favourite for me to live in would be your 2nd to last one – the smaller house, largish porch, overhang balcony and then the setting – back from the road and quietly tucked away … what a great selection of different doors in their houses or barn, or cottage … fun to see – all the best – Hilary

  5. I could really enjoy the first one or the last one – really enjoy. :-) The rest are gorgeous but would need a huge bank account and your carpentry skills to keep them in shape. So, I’ll sign off and just be thinking about how I could use either of those barns or garage.

    1. Hahaha – yeah, I’m with you, Judy. I’d love to live in several of these, but I think the maintenance would be a challenge – especially painting. I guess I’d have to pay someone to do that. The barn though, I could handle that.

  6. O.K. that house with the porch and the tower room is pretty much my dream dwelling. I love anything with an antique feel and a front porch. Unfortunately, my own house is nothing like that but I can work with it and have got it pretty much the way I like. The one thing I could not live in is an ultra-modern steel and glass kind of thing. I know many of them are beautiful, but meh, if someone gave me one I’d sell it and get something like your barn garage. Have a great day.

  7. Another great series of captures! I like your take on the upstairs sunroom addition. It took my back to an old two story Victorian home I lived in as a child. Upstairs, the last bedroom at the end of the hallway by the bathroom had sunroom windows across the two exterior walls forming the corner. Looking back I also remember being told that the large country kitchen (with a small bathroom) was added onto the original house. Duh..that bedroom and the upstairs bathroom were the 2nd floor of that addition. Makes sense that someone did that to an old victorian that probably didn’t have actual bathrooms when it was originally built. Ok….I’m a little slow on the uptake, but heh I got there due to your comment.
