When we were approached by representatives of the National Parks Department and asked if we could build a custom basement bulkhead door, that replicates the the original door built for Teddy Roosevelt, with modern functionality, we were honored and determined to provide a stellar reproduction. They told us that they had tried other manufacturers without success.
This bulkhead is actually built on an aluminum infrastructure, which constitutes the basis for all of our Everlast and Cape Cod Classic bulkheads.
We then overlayed the aluminum with some of the finest wood on the planet, provided by the folks at Accoya.
The end result is a bulkhead that gives the appearance of a classic two door wooden plank bulkhead, when in reality, it is a single door hatch style bulkhead, that is completely made in America, is easy to open and will last a lifetime.
The folks doing the restoration of the Sagamore Hill Estate will be painting the bulkhead the original blue/gray color that matches the surrounding trim, but for now, the beauty of this wooden structure is hard to miss.
We enjoyed the challenge and would welcome yours as well.
