Classic Door LLC is owned by Cody Harple of Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Cody originally established his business in 2010 under the name Ding Shack. Through the years, his work has evolved to meet the needs of his clients, many of whom own historic properties in Newport and the surrounding areas. These houses, often along the coast, need doors that can withstand all kinds of weather, but also fit in to the classical aesthetic. Through filling that need, Classic Door was born.
Cody lives in Portsmouth, RI with his wife, Allyson, and their two children, Willa and Huxley. When he's not busy making sure when one door closes, it actually stays closed and keeps the water out, you can usually find him kiteboarding, riding his bike, designing and creating, traveling, or hanging out with his family.
