How beautiful are these?  The contractor completed demolition on our project in North Palo Alto, and exposed the original pocket door hardware in between 100-year old framing. 

We knew the pocket doors were there and planned on removing them, but after talking with the owners, the unanimous decision was to salvage the doors and mount them with their original hardware on the wall, barn door style.  It's an art installation of sorts, honoring a relic of the house's past.

The rawness of the space is so exciting, so full of potential.  We have big, wonderful plans for this house - more to come!
