Shaker Scale: Doorways


Outside Door: Very squarish and low (80"x41" w/in frame, trim 4.5")

Small scale is cozy. We've visited our friends in the old Shaker village each year for a number of years, and it's always a highlight of our summer. Here's our tour from last year: House Tour: Shaker Brick House.

This year we thought we'd dive deeper and record the size and scale of the house, because it's unique and conveys a strong feeling. We begin with the two doorways sizes. The thinking here is that if you ever want to build a doorway and like this scale, you'll have it here...


interior Door: quite low but no heads hit (75"x32" w/in frame, trim 4.5")
