Ask This Old House Films in Decatur

Great story over at The Decatur Patch. Tom Silva of Ask This Old House installs a new front door.

Between the hinges with DIY expert Tom Silva.

By Renee DeGross Valdes

Seven years ago, Lucius and Danielle Herrmann bought a new front door as a joint anniversary gift and until Wednesday, it sat gathering dust.

"We never installed it," said Lucius Herrmann of Decatur. "The door was so darn expensive (at $1,500), I didn't want to mess it up."

There's no chance of that now. Home improvement expert Tom Silva arrived with camera crews and producers of "Ask This Old House," to film the door installation at the Herrmann's South Candler Street home.

"The door is beautiful," Silva said, between takes on the set. "It's a nice, solid, oak door."

Silva made it look easy, too. He measured hinges, and cut the shape of the new door with the old white one.

East Court Square in the 1940's

This is a very good picture of East Court Square in the 1940's the stores line East Court Square.
Adams Department store, F.J. Cooledge & Sons,The Bootery Shoe Shop, Tatum's Drug Store.
Photo from Vanishing Dekalb.
Back then shoppers had to circle the square looking for a parking spot, today they can still circle "sort of" but it's only like a half circle on E. Court Sq. and then you have to turn right on E. Ponce de Leon.
