Half Glass Dutch Doors For Exterior Entry

Featuring French-style glass panels and a solid lower half, this Half French Dutch door isboth practical and elegant. This doorfeatures individual glass panes, solid wood construction, and multiple customization options. Add a uniquelyfunctional and beautiful entry door to your home with the HalfGlass Dutch Door. Shown here in Wenge.

An Exterior Dutch Door With Classic French Styling

It used to be that you had to choose between functionality and beauty when it comes to front doors. But now you can get the best of both worlds with the Half French Dutch Door. This door blends the farmhouse practicality of the Dutch Door with the classic proportions of a French Door. Like our Full French Dutch Door, the Half French features individual glass panes for an authentic look. But the bottom half of the door slab is rendered in solid wood, so this French door variation is optimal for homeowners who want an entry door with more privacy. Looking to add a shelf? We have three optional shelf configurations to choose from, all of which come with corbels to support the shelf and add a traditional look.  


A Dutch door is a perfect choice for homeowners with young children or pets, as the lower half of the door can stay securely closed while you open the door to accept a delivery or just get some fresh air. This design allows for increased natural light whether the top half of the door is open or closed, thanks to the glass. And like all our doors, the Half French Dutch Door is constructed with solid wood and traditional joinery, resulting in increased longevity and a luxurious, premium look.  

Skilled artisans make all our doors by hand onsite in Gig Harbor, a small seaport town on the Puget Sound in Washington State.


Wood Species

RealCraft offers twenty different wood species, ranging from traditional to exotic.


One of the reasons we love real wood so much is that it carries the character of its natural habitat. Wood species respond differently to humidity and temperature conditions. If you aren't sure which wood species to pick, call us at 1-800-694-5977.


If you want to see our wood in person before making a selection, you can order samples here. Check out our wood buying guide here.


Glass Options

When selecting a glass option for this door, keep in mind how private the space is. Choose the standard clear glass for full transparency or the etched option for a little more privacy.


We also offer custom glass options upon request.


Hinge Style & Placement

Our standard entry hinges are 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" ball-bearing hinges available in:

  • Standard Steel with multiple finish options
  • Solid Brass
  • Pure Stainless Steel

If your door will be an outswing door--especially in coastal areas--we recommend stainless steel or brass hinges to prevent corrosion.


We offer American or European hinge placement of the ball bearing hinges. American-style hinge placement spaces out the hinges evenly. The European-style puts two hinges high on the door and one at the bottom. We recommend European style hinge placement, it is the strongest option. This placement allows the two upper hinges to better bear the load of the door, thus preventing sag over time.


Our concealed hinges come in pairs. They are available in multiple finishes and are a top-of-the-line, completely concealed hinge system with maintenance-free slide bearings. Choose this door hinge for a sleek, upscale finish.


Door Handing & Swing Direction

To determine door handing: Stand with your back to the jamb to be hinged. Then let your arm be the door and note whether the door swings to your right or your left. If it swings to your left, it is a left-handed door. If it swings to your right, it is a right-handed door.


To determine “inswing” or “outswing”: First, stand outside your house. Then, when your door opens does it open into the house? Then it is an inswing door. Does it open out from the house? Then it is an outswing door. 


Note: Inswing doors are more typical for entry doors.


Pre-Hung Door Jambs

Door jambs are made of the same wood as the door for a cohesive look no matter what wood you choose.


Jamb measurements: Door width plus 2 3/8" (plus another 1/2" with concealed hinges)

Minimum rough opening: Door width plus 2 3/4" (plus another 1/2" with concealed hinges)


Pre-Hung Door Threshold & Sweep

Our exclusive white oak threshold offers superior water protection and wear resistance. We use a pure silicone, adjustable Swiss weather sweep set into the bottom of the door. Kerfed weatherstripping is standard. If you need an ADA threshold, call us.


Door Maintenance 

Our doors are designed to be low maintenance. If you live in a place that has big temperature changes between seasons, you may need to tighten or lubricate your hinges from time to time. You should also adjust the door sweep to make sure it keeps the door sealed against the elements over time.


Our Osmo oil hardwax finishes may need a refresh every 1-3 years depending on their exposure to elements. Large temperature & humidity changes, direct exposure to sunlight, and seaside environments all can affect how often a door needs refreshing. Unlike plastic based varnishes, Our Osmo oil hardwax finishes don’t chip or flake off, so you don’t have to sand them to refinish. Simply clean the wood surface and reapply the finish, removing excess and rubbing in for best results.


If your door gets dirty (weather, pets, children, etc.) you can clean it with a gentle soap and water. If you have to clean the hinges for any reason, make sure they dry thoroughly.   



For frequently asked questions about choosing a door and hardware see our FAQ page. And feel free to reach out any time to speak to a qualified consultant by calling 1-800-694-5977.

Ordering a pre-hung door means the door jamb is included. Therefore measurements for pre-hung doors should take into account the overall Unit Measurements and the Minimum Rough Opening where it will be installed. 


Calculating Unit Measurements for pre-hung doors:

  • To calculate the Unit Width: Add 2 3/8” to the door's width (add another 1/2" if concealed hinges were selected).
  • To calculate the Unit Height: Add 2 5/8” to the door's height (add another 1/2" if concealed hinges were selected).

So the Unit Measurements for a pre-hung 32" x 80" door with standard hinges would be 34 3/8” x 82 5/8”.


Calculating Minimum Rough Opening for pre-hung doors:

  • To calculate the Minimum Rough Opening Width: Add 2 3/4" to the door's width (add another 1/2" if concealed hinges were selected).
  • To calculate the Minimum Rough Opening Height: Add 2 3/4" to the door's height (add another 1/2" if concealed hinges were selected).

So a pre-hung 32" x 80" door with standard hinges will need a Minimum Rough Opening of 34 3/4" x 82 3/4".

We highly recommend adding a clear finish to your door to protect it and make sure that it is eligible to be covered by our warranty. A clear finish not only protects your door, it also enhances its beauty and brings out the color and detail of the grain. 


We offer the following finish options:

  • White Primer: Added to Paint Grade Hardwood. For this option, we use only high-quality hardwoods like European Beech or Red Grandis. These species provide a smooth surface for paint.
  • Clear Satin Eurofinish by Osmo: A high-end hand-rubbed hardwax oil that conditions, seals, and finishes the wood.
  • Oil Stain EuroFinish by Osmo: A high-end hand-rubbed hardwax oil that stains, seals, and finishes the wood.
