Finally we went to a home improvement center to browse. Fiberglass, wood, steel; some very pricey indeed! And look at all the variations and colors! This was not going to be as easy as we thought!

First, we researched, besides the cost, how each door type was better or worse. Fiberglass was our final choice.

Now for the fun! We decided to go downtown with our digital camera and take photos of all the various doors we liked on neighbor's houses. After a good stroll and getting about a dozen styles, we headed home.

Using Paint and Microsoft Picture Manager on our computer; we were able to put the various door styles onto a photo of our "real" house and "see" how they would actually appear. Take a look at the pictures below to see how we did.

The results were surprising to us. Many doors that we had leaned to liking, actually didn't suit our colonial at all!

This simple exercise led us to confidently purchase a fiberglass front door with sidelites for around $1000. We have more light, no cold and drafts and a great front entrance!
Happy hunting to all!
