    Subject:  Installing Doors?
    Comment:  In another case it was to replace a couple missing doors in our old brownstone. I measured carefully and went to Big Reuse, who have a lot of salvaged doors. I was able to find two doors of similar vintage and style, but slightly larger. I think they were each $90-120 or so. It involved a little bit of trimming to size, and a lot of paint stripping (never again) but it worked out.

    Comment:  Build It Green now called Big Reuse where I'd donate your ceiling fan. It's also a great place to shop if you need building supplies.

    Comment:  Check out Build It Green; the website is: http://www.bignyc.org/ Their mission is to keep usable furniture and building materials out the the waste and into the hands of people like you! You can search their site or go in person; locations are in Gowanus and Queens. I've seen lots and lots of doors on their site, and prices are good.Another option: there's a place on 9th St at the edge of the Lowes parking lot. You can search through all kinds of reclaimed things, agina including furniture, doors and such. Happy hunting!
