In our neighborhood, doors tend not to be too exciting, as most of them have screen doors on the outside, often with thicker screens called sun screens rather than bug screens to help keep out…you guessed it. Keeping out the sun factors greatly into your electric bills, especially in summer, which runs from temperature-wise from about May-September.

So I’m being creative in presenting these three doors from our neighborhood. I hope you’ll enjoy them. And welcome to October!

This view is unusual in that there’s standing water in the shot, something you don’t often see here. It’s not from rain but from watering the common area in our HOA (homeowners association.)

This one’s for Dan (and the neighborhood children.) The park’s called “Train Park”, possibly named by Captain Obvious. 🙂

In much of Wyoming, the doors of choice are outdoors (or maybe sometimes outhouse doors), but if you look, you can sometimes find doors of the more normal sort. Both sets of doors today are definitely not geared towards people tending toward the wide side. But anyone can view them from the outside, the best place to by in Wyoming.

This is the door end of a sheepherder’s wagon. It’s not in use now in that capacity, but it works well for a unique door. Talk about tiny houses before tiny houses were the in thing! And this one is moveable. Click here for a short but very cool, one might even say cold, look at how an entire family lived in one of these! And seriously, you all need to take a look at these incredible Woolywagons. These days you can rent one also instead of a motel room if you so choose. Dan, Norm, or any other handy DIYers want to build your own? Here are “20 Awesome Shepherders Plans” ready and waiting. You could get more than one blog post out of that project!

Drat! I forgot Norm was taking this week and the next two off. Well, I hope you enjoyed the limited edition Thursday Doors. I wonder if anyone else forgot.

Only one shot this week because what else could go with this??

Welcome back, Norm. I hope you had a wonderful two weeks off, but door-n it, we missed you!

Not only do most people not have doors like this, not everyone has a door guardian like the one belonging to this Basel family.  Perhaps the bush in front of him used to be as large as the one on the opposite side and he’s been munching it down for lo, these many years.  Who knows?

Want to join Thursday Doors?  Click on the link, which will connect you to Norm’s site, and follow the directions.  It’s lots of fun and you’ll see all sorts of interesting, beautiful, unique, and sometimes weird, doors.
