I have almost finished building my new porch , constructed of a Local Ashlared Stone  ( at great expense ) . I own a Grade II Listed house and have to match the existing front door which is a plank , ledge and brace .  I have looked in to buying one and found them to be sooooooooo expensive , being in the trade I have an idea of what it takes / costs  , I would love to make my own but I need a frame to suit too , only thing is that my tools and knowledge are not extensive enough to make them both , I have spent many hours ( ask my partner ) trawling the net in search of free plans / specs  . having resigned myself to the fact that unless I fork out a large wad in return for a plan I will only use the once , I will nedd to purchase a completed unit . 

Now to the reason of my post , does anyone know where I can find plans to make the door 'n' frame or is there any one within reasonable traveling distnce of south somerset that I could commision to make the items .

Any help will be gratefully received

And just like to say this is agreat site and hope to post some of my mini efforts in the near future  .

I made a door at college as part of a machine woodworking course. I've got the plans and scanned them in but how to get it to you? I've added a picture to my gallery. Album title is Roger. Hope this helps.
