Door I took this photo in London a few years back. It was in between two restaurants.

The sign for the restaurant on the left, “Oops,” seemed rather appropriate for the door. 🙂

In New England, when you are trying to repair something on an old house that just doesn’t work like it would in a newer house, they refer to it as cobbling. We cobble a lot around here between an old house, an old barn, and always attempting to reuse, recycle, or repurpose.

So, when we saw this door while walking down Catherine Street in London, we had to stop, grab a photo, and share a chuckle. Been there, had to do that.  🙂

    That’s fantastic. I once did some repair work in a historic home in CT (1640s or so) and the slope in the kitchen was about at that angle. The cabinets had been hung level, but the soffit above them was filling a gap that was 0″ on one end and over 12″ on the other end of a 10′ run. It certainly is a challenge. Good luck in your cobbling.

    Love it! I guess making the door on an angle was simpler than straightening the building 😉

  3. Great catch with the juxtaposition of the “Oops” sign and the cool door. Where do you find the door challenge?

    It’s so charming in its straight forward honesty! It looks like it might be the portal to some enchanted world – one you might find inhabited by busily scurrying magical creatures!


  5. Looks like someone made creative use of a carpenter’s plane and level.

    I think the MOI above the door is screaming “See me, I’m here”. Love it.

    Marvelous! I bet that door has been photographed a lot. Were the doors on the entire block of Catherine Street just a little askew?

    I love this. Wonderful shot! I like the way the door is askew. It gives it character. 🙂

    Now that is a very cool door! I just love it and the color, too. Very different from anything you would see in southern California.
