As easy as 1, 2, 3? Not so fast. Even simple domestic entrances can be gateways to bewilderment. These two doorbells are from homes on the same block. Both have the handmade, handpainted look that often translates into a peculiar brand of welcome-mat confusion. The numbering on the doorbell to the right is out of order, even though switching the sequence should be a fairly simple wiring matter. The doorbell to the left provides an unexplained pair of buttons for the occupant(s) in number 3.
