The doors came in last week and Mike spent a couple of days getting them in. This could not have been an easy task, as they’re solid wood and pre-hung, making them heavier still.

Pre-hung doors come with the frame attached and are commonly used in new construction and make a lot of sense because if you had to build each and every frame for each of the doors, it would take a really long time.

The style of door I chose is three panels with raised molding. The raised molding was a must for me with the French Provincial inspired style of our home and I’m really happy with how they turned out.

The next step will be the installation of the molding around the doors and at some point soon, the doors will be removed from their hinges, painted, and then re-attached.

A few months ago I selected the door knobs and hardware and they will be the perfect finishing touch. I blogged all about the process of choosing the handles here.

Note: This house update is part of a long series of posts on the progress of our new home we’re building in Spokane. You can find the first post here, the second post here, the third post here, the fourth post here, the fifth post here, the sixth post here, the seventh post here, the eighth post here,  the ninth post here, the tenth post here, and my guest posts on selecting door hardware here on The Hardware Hut blog and narrowing down the choices for our cabinet hardware with The Hardware Hut here.

I frequently share videos of our home construction project on my Instagram stories.

I’ll be sharing more blog posts as we go along. If you have specific questions regarding our build, please leave them in the comments below so when I respond and post, I’m able to answer and share with anyone else who is following along and may want the same information. Thanks!


In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
