David and Christiane Erwin the owners of Crestview Doors began the renovation of their mid-century home in 2005. They looked for a solid-wood door that would compliment the vintage aesthetic they were trying to recreate. The design they wanted was on the house across the street, and on the home around the corner, but nowhere online or in any showroom.
It seemed that the doors of the 50's were everywhere in the Brentwood and Crestview neighborhoods of Austin, Texas. But they were disappearing quickly as the 50-year-old homes succumbed to the heat, lack of care, or to remodeling.
David went to a neighbor's house on Pasadena Avenue and measured their door in order to create a reproduction. Once built and installed, countless strangers knocked on the door of the Erwin House and asked where the door came from. David realized that the he and Christiane weren't the only ones looking for a Crestview door.
Crestview Doors is pleased to offer a range of solid-wood doors based on the timeless designs of the American mid-century masters.
