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 two 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.  

 

Features:

  • Solid wood construction 
  • Twenty wood species to choose from 
  • Insulated glass panel in either clear or Crystal Etched (frosted) glass 
  • Your choice of high or low Dutch cut 
  • Exclusive contrasting wood sticking available
  • Optional shelf or double shelf   
  • Nine hinge options  
  • Kerfed weatherstripping 

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

 

Dutch Shelf

Our Dutch shelf comes with corbels for support and a classic silhouette. The Dutch shelf is tapered, as shown below, in order to allow for optimal door clearance. There are three Dutch shelf options: you can either opt for an interior shelf, an exterior shelf, or a double-sided shelf. Please note that shelf height will vary slightly depending on the hinge side and/or door handing. Hinge-side shelves will be slightly lower on the door slab than non-hinge side shelves. As shown in the image below, a double sided shelf will be slightly offset because of the nature of the Dutch cut in the door slab. 

 

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.

 

Note that exterior Cedar doors come with a Douglas Fir jamb.

 

Glass Options

Glass Options

Our Dutch doors come with nine possible glass configurations on the upper door leaf. Choose a single pane for the most contemporary look, or opt for divided lights with mullions to make it more traditional, up to nine lights in all. We offer four glass types, including two Solarban variations. Solar Ban helps to regulate the temperature of your home by preventing heat transfer. Glass choices include:

 

  • Clear Insulated
  • Satin Insulated
  • Clear Solarban Low-E 60
  • Satin Solarban Low-E 60

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.

 

Our Simonswerk Tectus concealed hinges come in pairs and are three-dimensionally adjustable: side +/- 3mm, height, +/- 3mm, compression +/- 1.5mm. 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 and our recommendation for Dutch doors.

 

Pre-Hung Door Jambs

There are three options for jamb material: 

  • Hemlock, the industry standard
  • Douglas Fir, an upgraded option 
  • Door Matched wood, for a premium look 

 

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)

 

Please note that exterior casing/trim is not included. Cedar exterior doors come with a Douglas Fir jamb. 

 

Pre-Hung Door Threshold & Sweep

Pre-hung doors come with an exclusive white oak threshold. Our 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.
