My wife wanted an Ole Style Country Screen Door for the back of the house.
We checked at a couple home stores but the doors were cheaply built, so I decided to build my own.
It's a much smaller project than building a shooting range but it turned out well and the wife is happy. Now she wants one for the front door. Go figure.
So today I bought the lumber. I'll build the frame this week and then buy the hardware & trim.Total cost is about $200 and 4 days work.

Looks great, Greyhawk! Very nice job! Brings back memories of when I was a youngster and I would swing the door open, bail off the side porch letting the door slam shut. That was always quickly followed by my Mom yelling at me....

Door #2, for the front of the house, is in the process of being painted. In a couple days, I'll add the screen & hardware, then hang it. I'm living with a happy wife. :))

My Dad was the one that yelled at me. (Don't slam that door)
Now I can let it slam all I want. hehe

Good work Greyhawk. More skill needed than just scraping up dirt. Wooden doors look and are better than those metal thingys. Bye the way I need a door for my new room ..... :)

Those doors bring back memories of my Grandmas house with the distinctive sound, of me pulling on the spring just to hear the Twang :D

I screened in my porch back in Ohio and installed a wood screen door.
