Building and Installing a Screen or Storm Door

Let the spring air flow through your house and listen to the birds sing, while keeping out the bugs and pollen. That’s what a screen door will do for you. Here are some sources for building and installing your own. If you are looking for a pre-made door we suggest a storm/screen combo that will allow you to remove or slide the glass down in the summer and replace it with a screen. We particularly like the Larson storm doors as they have retractable screens so there’s no need to search and store the seasonal door panels.

    Every garage I’ve ever seen has its fair share of garbage. Some may look like garbage: big packages waiting to be broken down for recycling, big Styrofoam blocks that need to go out a bit at a time, or things waiting to be taken to the hazardous chemical processing site. In my garage we also have quite a few ragged pine cones (my daughter likes to rehabilitate them before setting them free in the wild), sticks, old pieces of wood and a pile of old glass.
