Our Mission

Real Carriage Door & Sliding Hardware offers a throwback to the craftsman era of quality and attention to detail. With solid wood construction and mortise and tenon joinery, our craftsmen take great pride in each door they design and build.

Step by step, they painstakingly put forth the time, energy, and personal attention each door deserves. Meticulous and steadfast, they are unwavering in the quality of the doors they build.

While here, you will find that craftsmanship, excellence, and innovation are of the utmost importance. We embrace the art of working with raw materials and the creative diligence to turn it into something extraordinary.

Unsurpassed quality and workmanship is what you can expect when you choose us. We lead the way in custom doors and we invite you to Build Real with us.

Our Founder

Don Rees started out as the builder, designer, and owner of Rees Builders. He started building authentic one-of-a-kind homes in 1976. His house building projects often incorporated his own wooden doors.

Don created his first swing-out carriage garage doors on a custom home in 1995. Soon his idea found a home in all his projects and became a significant part of Rees Builders. Don found a market for his handcrafted doors. His doors stood above standard garage doors in their quality, unique design, and operation. Soon business drove Don into creating Real Carriage Door & Sliding Hardware. Don continues to oversee daily operations, create new designs, and continues to innovate the idea of what a door can be.

RealCraft recently partnered with This Old House and Amy Matthews on a unique Modern Barnhouse nestled in St. Croix, Minnesota.

Designer and homeowner Amy Mathews wanted to create a Scandinavian-inspired oasis that still preserved the property's natural and historic buildings.

RealCraft was able to help with the project by supplying an essential set of carriage doors for the reclaimed workshop. Check out the final result and get inspired with these beautiful pictures!

Coastal style is beachy. Through the use of natural light, soft tones, and a clean aesthetic, it's meant to evoke the breeziness of the beach, with the feeling of summer year-round.

Here are 10 ways you can incorporate coastal décor into your space.
