We have compiled several thousand measured drawings of doors from the Historic
American Buildings Survey (HABS). These drawings record all of the
details of original doors from our architectural past. We also have a growing
library of reference material
pertaining to doors and architectural style. This information can be presented
to you through the internet as well as other media.
