Exterior Door Thresholds
We are building a double-stud house in Iowa — and have a wonderful builder to work with, even though this is the first such house he has built. The problem we are having is with exterior doors. We want the doors to open to the interior, and so they are “innies”. But the widest threshold we can find for an exterior door is 8 1/2″. All suggested solutions are complicated and/or limit the range that the door can open. Does anyone know of a company that makes a 13″ threshold?
We are doing this on a “normal” house budget — i.e. no imported triple-expensive solutions; trying to stay at the below the rollover point in the value/cost curve.
Thanks! Mary Hoyer
