Front and Back Exterior Doors

Originally the exterior doors were smaller than a standard size door, which is common for a mobile home. They were pretty flimsy and needed to be replaced.

My husband is the kind of guy if he is going to fix something, then he is going to do the job right! Dale purchased standard size steel doors. Thirty two inches for the back and thirty six inches for the front.

After my husband installed the doors, I had a bright idea! I suggested that maybe he could put wider trim around the doors and he thought that was a good idea too! Not only did Dale place wider trim, he added crown molding on top, which gave it a more custom look. I am not sure the proper name for the trim above, but if you know please let me know.

Because our home is small, I wanted the doorways to look grand. I think going with the standard size and adding the wider trim gives our place a more welcoming appeal.

A very dear friend of mine once told me, “It doesn’t matter where you live, your home is what you make it.” I’ve always remembered that statement and I believe she is right!
