    That is a great set up. Creating wode open spaces like that is always a challenge from a cost and structural aspect.

    Those are sweet doors. I wonder how well they seal.

    Those are sweet doors. I wonder how well they seal.

    I suspect they seal pretty well now. The test will be if they seal holds up over time. In there prime, old single pane windows sealed pretty good, Deterioration over time is what caused problems. The weatherproofing techniques used are similar to what I see in old windows.

    Dang that’s a lot of work. I think that I would be just as happy with some really nice french doors.

    kurt i was wondering the same thing about how they seal, there is a video that goes along with that article on youtube.. i find the best sealing doors are standard style doors with and outswing.. the windier it gets outside the harder the door is pushed into the weather stripping making a tighter seal

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    That definitely looks like a ton of work, but it is a pretty neat project and I imagine he saved some cash still doing it himself. Not to mention the satisfaction of doing it himself.

    I really appreciated the huge warning label at the beginning of the article showing transparency about his relationships w/the manufacturers of the products he used

    I would have thought this too but we often get a wind that goes over our shop and creates a vacuum on that side that actual pulls the door outwards, off the seal. We switched it around to an inside swing and it performs much better.

    Either way I think a tight seal is a good way to go.

    Those doors are super cool, but I don’t think they would perform well as -40.

    I imagine like any door, they will require maintenance and minor adjustments to keep them sealed and operating smoothly. It looks like he spent some time and thought on his weatherstripping placement and style.

    That was a sweet set-up but… I wasn’t sure about screens at first view which would be an absolutely necessity where I live. Too many insects to deal with. Mice are common here and with any gap they are in, let alone keeping them open like that. Just not practical here.

    Very nice set up but seems like a lot of work and I am thinking there is going to be a lot of maintenance to keep them working the way they should

    I myself prefer to have some kind of barrier between me and Nature such as mosquitoes and such. but very nice doors. I bet it is a real pain to keep the tracks clean.

    Super cool. I could see it being nice for a summer cabin on the ocean.
