Kitchen Door

Kitchen Door

The kitchen door was replaced in 2016 as a custom built exact replica of the original redwood door.  The ever-present rain and moisture was starting to damage the new door so we had the door sanded down, stained and resealed.  

So incredibly refreshing to see a residence unmolested by unsympathetic ownership. The personal touches, stories and tales from the last 67 years provide an amazing tapestry from which we can appreciate this architectural masterpiece. May the preservation of this house inspire not only its’ preservation but also that of other modernist examples in Hawai`i. Thank you.
