    Very simple drop door but it works great. My hubby cut opening and boxed it out inside with 2x4s.. Used a 1by2 to frame the outside of door and a piece of treated plywood cut in strip for the door to slide behind. a dowel rod to hold it open and keep it closed... the door is also made of treated plywood.

    Quote:I really like your door, Lilchick. Could you possibly post a closer picture?? We are at the point of needing to build our door and we just dont know what to do. Our main concerns our keping out sideways Midwest rain.

    THANKS
