Started working on my HC human screen door. I knew that I'd need something at the floor to keep the deep bedding contained. I took some scrap 3/4" plywood and cut 2 pieces 10"x32" and glued them together. I edge banded them with some scrap white oak. Tall enough to help contain the bedding but still short enough to step over comfortably.
4 small barrel bolts secure the assembly to the door jamb.
The screen door is made from 2 - 3/4" pine frames that I built with pocket hole joinery. The 2 frames are the bread with the 1/2" HC being the meat in the sandwich. The 2 frames are attached together with countersunk deck screws around the frame. Makes for a light but super sturdy door.
I installed another small barrel bolt on the inside so we can latch the door behind us when we are in there.
View from the outside.
I added a more substantial barrel bolt on the outside. I envision the main door being open a lot during the warmer months. This door will provide some really nice ventilation. I also got all the door stop in place with countersunk deck screws so the human door seals up nicely now. Very important in the colder months since it's on the north side.
Slowly but surely one piece at a time. Seems like this is taking f o r e v e r.
