Trying to follow this about the center door in an odd number door count.
Where do I look for this? Anywhere?

"Amusing"? Well, I don't know about that.... The single aperture out of 5 at Storer indicated to be the entrance, I have always considered a design flaw.

For the most circuitous route from sidewalk to confronting the fireplace at the heart of the house, the ten right-angled turns one makes at Emil Bach must take the cake.
Sorry Roderick I disagree. This was not an issue with the Storer house. Any of those could function as door I agree. But the one used as a door had a door knob and different detailing. Also at the top of the entry steps. No one would ever confused which “aperture” was the entry door, so I’m not sure where you are getting your information.

All the more reason not to make one door different from the others.

Door knobs are easier to open and lock. The others had internal fasteners used on casement windows. The wood part was protective as well.
