"What's in a Door?"

We made a visit to "La Puerta" out on Highway 14 late afternoon yesterday. We were drawn to the place when we saw from the road a large lot full of all kinds of recycled materials like doors, windows, chairs, canoes(?), corbels, etc. "La Puerta" helps to preserve our valuable natural resources by re-cycling wood and other reclaimed building materials, like antique grillwork. Eric and I took a tour of the large yard and were awed by the collection of 6,000 old doors, columns, corbels, shutters, timbers and reclaimed wood from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. All these recycled materials will be fashioned into beautiful objects for the home by the talented designers and hand craftsmen at "La Puerta".
