The Cottage doors are constructed using 20mm vertical planks that are fixed to 20mm x 150mm horizontal ledges. Small gaps are left between each vertical plank to allow the door planks to move freely stopping any potential twisting or bowing.
All timbers used are internal grade kiln dried to a moisture content of between 8 and 10% ideal for the usual dwelling. It is important to remember that any wet trades must be thoroughly dried out before introducing the doors into the environment as untreated doors will absorb moisture rapidly
