We used to have this really terrible, tiny bathroom in the middle of what could be a really fantastic large room if it was removed! But that's another story for another time. It had this wide but small window close to the ceiling and as it didn't let in enough sunlight it was decided to enlarge the hole down to the floor. This left a gaping hole in the wall to our courtyard - 2.1 metres by 1.5 metres - which meant we couldn't buy an 'off the shelf' door. So long story short here is the progression of the CASTLE DOOR!
