Forum Title: Door hardware cost and availability
The previous owners of my house put in an odd mix of door knob hardware. I'm trying to replace some and make it consistent. I'd like to go with the following look: My confusion is because I thought this was a fairly common look, but I'm having trouble sourcing it. The local home improvement retailers don't sell it. Online I've found a couple. An inexpensive one, which I bought, was really low quality. But a decent one (set of two plates plus knob) appears to be about ~$70 - and that's for a dummy version (one without the mortaise lock). Given I'm updating about 6 doors this will be a substantial cost. Am I missing something or is it just that this is a pretty rare product and it is fairly costly? Any other comments or suggestions? And I do know to be fully functional I would need a mortaise lock (which I don't have), but I'm willing to have it be not fully functional so I at least achieve the aesthetic.

Unless the size is unusual, I don't know why you couldn't get a Pella partial springline casement window that is custom sized to match. A Marvin push out french casement would be really nice. I would think that they are available in any custom size- for a price. You probably aren't talking to knowledgeable window people who want to make the phone call or take the risk of measuring and it not fitting. To get any window to fit, it's going to have to be a little smaller than the existing window or it won't go into the brick.

I can see having trouble finding this, as that keyway is obsolete.
