Passage Doors

   I am a premier designer and builder of custom doors and do not distribute custom doors through any re-seller.  Each door and door package is custom built in Nederland, CO  USA!  Nothing is mass produced.  Every door meets or exceeds Architectural Woodworking Institute (AWI) standards.  Exterior doors systems and interior door packages are comprised from standard classic styles, custom requirements to copyright designs that are both creatively unique and exciting.  Clean lines and complex joinery combined with outstanding artistic craftsmanship provide a beautiful, distinctive statement for home, business or corporation.  Doors are available in any width, height, thickness and wood species including reclaimed woods.  Barn and slab doors, completely assembled pre-hung units or doors with knockdown jambs for cost effective shipping are offered. 
   All designs can be crafted for interior or exterior use.  Full scale ACAD drawings and a list of options are provided for all work.  I am a pioneering specialist in interlocking, tapered and arched designs.  Distressed doors recreate an age old appearance resembling decades of use.
   Interlocking Design Series and Tapered Design Series are registered trademark names and offer copyright designs owned and protected exclusively by Whispering Wind Designs LLC.  My design library is unlimited.  I work with architects, designers, contractors and homeowners to create designs unlike anything available. 
   Large format CNC lasers and routers create beautiful custom and personalized glass etchings, wood engravings and inlays complementing any of our doors, sidelights or transoms.

  Construction Techniques

Wood for each project is carefully selected matching grains and tones.  Each part is inspected through every phase of the building process.  Stile, rail and mullion construction utilize either composite, timber strand or solid wood stave cores with solid 3/4 inch edging along with 1/4 inch or 5/8 inch thick wood faces, laminated or solid woods.  Panels for exterior doors and some interior doors are built using two separate panels allowing outside and inside panels to move independently.  Traditional mortise and tenon or birch dowels are used for assembly.  These techniques represent some of the absolute best in past and modern craftsmanship to produce an extremely stable door. 
Door jambs are built to the correct wall thickness and not just the standard 4 9/16" or 6 9/16" eliminating the need for jamb extensions.  Ball bearing hinges in select finishes are offered.  Standard thickness for both interior and exterior doors is 1 3/4 inch.
