This is the best one of all!!
Yes, I do to actually, even though the other series is far more beautiful. Thanks Petchary:)
Nice 🙂 The shirtless, dhoti clad carpenter could be from Kerala!
It’s a pretty universal scene from our part of the world, isn’t it?
Wonderful doors 🙂
They were wonderful. When they were all finished they made my life safe and breezy. Glad you could recognize their intrinsic design features:)
Well, they made things col!
Those are cool! Do they ever let any insects in or just the nice breeze?
Once the screen was attached to the upper section, just the breeze!
Perfect! I’m sure you get some interesting bugs over there!
Ah yes, unfortunately yes, lots of bugs and other things:)
I would want to see through those doors, too!
Perhaps they’re living lives of hidden desperation, but I just love to know about people!
I like this kind of door. It reminds me of being close to a beach or having a fun vacation at the tropics. Wonderful post!
Just so – how to make living in the tropics safe (from insects, and animals) and still be outdoors, so to speak! Glad it triggered memories!
The right doors make such a difference and vice versa.
You’re so right Ella. The widely opening French doors looked great but how to keep out the mosquitos (and other crawlies, and larger animals)? In this climate you need to harvest every draught and that’s what my six sets of louvre/screen doors gave me – plus security from pesky pests:)
it looks so exotic, hope you are enjoying those lovely doors!
It was exotic, and indeed I did enjoy them every day for two years. Unfortunately, the house turned out to have one too many structural problems, so I sold them to the owner and moved on to a more sound house!
I do love doors. 😉
I thought you might! 🙂
Hi and thanks for dropping by my blog. Doors … reminds me of a friend who, one bright morning realised doors were not just to keep things locked but could also be used to open and give access …!! Nice theme. We are almost neighbours – I live in Rajasthan.
Well “hi, there, neighbor”! It must be getting pretty hot up there by now. Feel free to drop by – we’re monsoon cooled these days:)
Lovely doors, Wanderlust 🙂
Thanks Kate. I loved watching them being made – what a treat in our manufactured world, to watch a craftsman working to create something so useful.
It sure beats a visit to the DIY store 😀
I hate to imagine what my DIY doors would look like!
Lovely new doors! Enjoy them. 😉
They were perfect!
Great work my friend ,about your message about water dragon logo right click the image just copy the image url and paste it in your image widget url that`s it thanks for sharing this post good work 🙂
I wonder if the problem is that I don’t have a right click facility on my Apple laptop trackpad?
So, I take it you also don’t have glass windows?? Only asking as in West Africa many windows and doors only have the bug sieves – which is great for letting in what little there is of fresh air, but it also lets in far too much dust (and moped fumes!)…
The original French doors had glass panes, but since each room only had a set of French doors one either had no air, or air plus bugs and no sense of security (snakes, iguanas, monkeys, etc.). My sliding louvre/fly screen doors gave me the best of both worlds because it’s just too hot to close doors and windows if I can help it – though we do have a bit of a dust problem.
