Look: Shutter-Style Door

Look: Shutter-Style Door

We came across this fabulous storm door on our walk the other night. It reminds us of the shutter doors on the shotgun houses in New Orleans...

We know that the floor to ceiling shutters on shotgun house helped keep out the light but yet allowed ventilation during the hot summer's months. A louvered shutter door such as this one would also have these benefits.

The utilitarian aspics of this door may be uncertain but it definitely gives this rowhouse a feeling of southern charm!
