Ah. The doors.They're done. 

Now usually a project such as this doesn't take so long, but we were under no constraints other than our own appointment with our ultimate destiny, and so we could, more than less, work at our leisure.
 
Here's a wide shot or two of the installation.
 
 
The handles came out rather well and we'd like to do a few more versions of these if given the chance.
 
Nice. Look how the siding and the Twin Wall textures work together. My world is groovy.
 
 
And, the grooves cut for the caulk worked as expected (it will dry clear) and we will do this again.
 
Next time I'd run the rails the full length from edge to edge, the reason there is a floor to ceiling center stile was a pragmatic choice deemed necessary by, well… running out of wood. That was however, caused by on the fly design changes, specifically by deciding to put in clear lites. Other niggles include the short setback of the lock, wouldn't it look better for the lock face plate to be more centered? I'll talk to the manufacturer. The clear lites themselves maybe should have had aluminum trim, though as a practical demand it's not necessary.
