Rancho Loma is a beautiful destination restaurant
south of Abilene, TX, that draws guests from miles away, including Southern Living magazine. The door to the ranch’s guest house was built to reflect the feel of the surrounding back country and is witness to its guest’s weekend gatherings on the patio. Nestled perfectly within the structure’s native rock walls, this exterior door is made from reclaimed long leaf yellow pine with floating, staggered-thickness panels. It’s a simple door from a distance, but rewards you with finer details upon inspection.
Built sturdy at 2-1/4″ thick, 38″ wide and 6′-8″ tall. Antique nickel thumb latch, mortised lock set. The threshold is polished concrete with a hidden sweep. A heavy barn beam transom is set into the rock overhead. This serves as the top jamb with a unique integrated top sweep on top of the door. The beam is accompanied by 2″ thick jamb sides. No doubt, this wooden door has a heavy, honest feel to it when swung open or shut.

A family’s memories of their grandparent’s screen door and that old, familiar “squeak” and “slam” were the ingredients for this one-of-a-kind screen door. The kitchen is comprised of an eclectic mix of new and old materials—concrete, copper, combed glass, wire screen and wood. The owners wanted a special screen door that would make sense amid that mix and be able to make its own statement. It is now the focal point of the kitchen.
Reclaimed pine for the rails, stiles and dovetailed mullions. 7/8″ thick, 24″ wide and 6′-8″ tall. Antique sand-cast, flush-mounted spring hinges. Pewter pull. Fine copper mesh screen. Filtered shellac and wax finish. Convert any pantry’s solid slab door into your own unique screen door.
