I didn't really expect the Mistral Staircase to be so popular, but I'm glad it is, because maybe it means my tastes are no so outre as I feared.
Here's a matching sliding door to expand the theme:
This is intended primarily as an interior door, but works as an exterior as well, providing you don't mind the gap between the two glass panes. There's nothing fancy here, just a plain old sliding door with clean lines and transparent surfaces. It also works on diagonal walls.
Recolorable wood and glass, just like the stairs. This door was made using the same textures and material definitions used in the mistral stairs and fence. It is not repositoried because a few alterations were necessary to get the shadows in the right places. Also, you may notice in these pics that some of the glass colors look pale and chalky. I had trouble getting the lighting right while making these screenshots. It's the effect of too many lights and not a difference in color that make them look weird. They still match; I'm just a terrible photographer.
