March–April Leftover Doors

Welcome to Thursday Doors! This is a weekly challenge for people who love doors and architecture to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos, drawings, or other images or stories from around the world. If you’d like to join us, simply create your own Thursday Doors post each (or any) week and then share a link to your post in the comments below, anytime between 12:01 am Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time). If you like, you can add our badge to your post.

Between creating the lists and page for the First Annual Thursday Doors Writing contest and a week’s worth of rain in a few days, I didn’t have time to go exploring for new doors. SO, as the title suggests, I’m serving leftovers today.

The writing contest got off to a good start last week. I hope we see more entries in this week’s cycle. There are some amazing writers in this community. The menu at the top of this post has two items under the Thursday Doors option. One takes you to the Thursday Doors Recap page and the other loads the Thursday Doors Writing Contest page. On the later, you can find the doors that can be used as inspiration for your writing project. You can also find the entries made last week.

I will be away from my computer for several hours today. I may not get to the doors and writing entries until later this evening. I hope you enjoy the doors in the gallery and I encourage you to explore a few of the other doors offered here.

    • Several of these houses are the last remaining houses in an area that has been developed over recent years. I guess they’ve just been added onto multiple times. They are interesting.

      Yours was a nice visit (for us old folks).

  1. I like those shutters too! The porches are great. All these homes, with their doors and trim, multiple roof lines are interesting, to say the least. You have a good eye for detail, Dan. I would have driven by some of these and never see many of their unique features.

    • I did drive by the house with the weird angles, but when I saw that angled upper porch, I had to go back, Ginger. Mansard roofs always catch my eye.


  2. Hi Dan – they’re a good selection .. while the house would be a lot more charming without the radio receiver on it – but I guess they must have hobbies! Cheers for your bar entry – Hilary

  3. The house with the crazy roofline…how did that ever pass inspection?! That’s the kind of house I would really like to see the inside–I’m imagining it must be fabulous. You have the best houses/doors…! These are hardly leftovers, Dan. Down here, they’d be called lagniappe–a little something extra.

    • Woo hoo! I learned a new word. I would love to see inside that house, but I’d hate to have to maintain the outside. I’m going to assume that it meets code – there’s nothing in the building code that prevents weird structures or bad taste.

    • I do think there were several renovations to a few of these houses. The one with the dish could use a little TLC, but i like it. Remove the dish, though.

      Thanks for linking up with us!


    • I’m glad you liked that first house. Those roofs always catch my attention. When I see windows that seem out of place or in odd places, I try to figure out what it looks like inside. When I saw how deep the house goes, it made sense that the stairs would be there.

    • I feel the same way about leftovers, Mary. That dish looks like it probably causes as many problems as it solves. With my luck, that dish would be blowing onto the highway in the first big storm.

  4. Hi Dan, sorry to have missed the door postings for over a month but I’m glad you did a second serving of doors so I can catch up a bit. Your commentary and buildings, door and roofs make it sound like you’re a realtor and maybe you should do that as a sideline job if you can ever find some free time. Great door post!

    • Thanks Natalie. Several of these houses are quiet large. Often, they get divided into apartments, but these seem to remain single-family dwellings. I really like the collection you brought us today.
