This unique piece of architecture became popular in the American colonies of New York and New Jersey, which were originally settled by the Dutch before the English took over. The Dutch Door may have been invented in Holland, but its popularity in America was unrivaled. Dutch Doors are essentially made up of two independently moving doors (one on top of the other). Finding an original Dutch Door today is a real treat because they were made in a time when home building was not yet standardized. The Dutch Door is a rare find these days and is a period appropriate addition to most houses built before the 1880s. I found an old Dutch Door with 8 panes of glass on the top half, in an old barn that the owners were going to burn. Lori, the glass is likely held in place with those same wood glazing strips unless it was assembled around the glass (very rare). Phil, for a crack that is causing the door or lock to not seat properly a better repair would be to squeeze some wood glue like Titebond III (which is a waterproof glue, good for outdoors) into the crack and clamp the rail and stile back into place until the glue dries. You’ll need to consider the functionality and suitability of the styles of exterior Dutch door hardware you would like to buy.
Scott I appreciate you enthusiasm and the quality artisanship with in the services that you company provides. There are a lot of links on this site to information or products I have personally found helpful. I bring you our most exciting chapter in our series of The Nursery That Was An Office That Was a Library That Was a Hallway: RocketBaby Gets a Door!

Barbed wire had yet to be invented either and so many farms had various animals milling about the immediate outside of the house. The sizes and materials you’re likely to encounter will usually be unique to that particular region giving each door its own individual story. It harkens back to a different era when people would have a friendly chat with passersby from an open door or set a pie to cool on the top perch of their Dutch Door. I help old house lovers understand & restore their homes so they can enjoy the history and character that surrounds them more everyday! The bottom section has a narrow crack between the vertical and horizontal pieces (stile and rail?), which may be preventing the lock bar from the top section from seating correctly. Filling with epoxy will fix the problem cosmetically but the door will likely continue to split in time.
My name is Scott and I'm the author of the #1 Amazon Bestselling book Living in the Past and owner of Austin Home Restorations, a historic restoration company in Orlando, FL. As you may recall, up to this point we’ve closed off both entries to the nursery with curtains (and in the case of the living room entrance, also an old comforter that I took with me to college). In the end, we went with a much simpler solution: a single-fold accordion-style door made out of (what else?) two sheets of plywood. I’d like to paint it the same color as the wainscoting, and maybe go with a nice wall decal motif.
But this door has a special relationship with the earliest American colonies where it was almost a necessity of colonial home design. Prior to 1887 when Hannah Harger invented the screen door there was not a good way to allow fresh air into the kitchen and keep the critters out.


The dutch door not only allowed fresh air in, but also kept these animals out of the house (along with pests like mice) and kept the children safely within the home.
The bottom portion contains the doorknob and lock, and the top portion contains a latch to attach the two portions together. When not working, writing or teaching about old houses I spend most of my time fixing up my own 1929 bungalow with my wife Delores and sons Charley and Jude.
I watched a video on how to repair a glass pane in a door where he removed the trim around the glass.

The blackout curtains did a decent job with the light dampening, but not much for sound, so we hung said comforter with binder clips to nails driven into the door jamb. The Dutch Door also allowed for the owner to accept deliveries and have conversations with visitors without permitting access to the house.
But my door seems to be made up of a solid trellis(?) I’m afraid I will harm the wood if I start digging around with an exacto knife. I love old houses and teaching ordinary homeowners how to restore them to their former glory. The light plywood brightens up our living room considerably, and since we’re keeping the interior curtain, the soundproofing is as good as it was before.
