Exterior Double Doors
We are in the middle of planning a total renovation of an old, farmhouse/ modified cape type home in CT. We have now had two meetings with our architect to develop plans. In 3 separate house locations she is recommending exterior double doors (French doors). She feels they will go with the existing architecture better than sliding/gliding doors and that they give a full opening instead of half an opening. We are trying to maximize the views.
I’m concerned about air leakage. I’ve never been confident double doors would seal particularly well and I’ve already got my work cut out for me sealing the rest of the structure.
