Derelict dwelling’s door

door 7

The house has been abandoned for years and is rapidly falling to pieces. Such a pity, it was probably quite nice once upon a time. The area has been going downhill for decades, but houses have generally been cared for as summer houses. Not this one though, the owner lives too far away to have any interest in it and it’s really passed the point when someone would like to buy. It is in a remote area – in spite of having been empty for years there are no signs of break-ins.

Hi Norm – it’s a contribution to your Thursday Doors

I’m not a construction engineer, but it seems to me that the people constructing the bricked-up door must have understood their trade better than the those doing the latter day addition. That is, the vault would carry the load of the building better than a straight line. Norm of Norm’s Thursday Doors can perhaps shed light on this issue?
