    I need to set up a door that will close at night and open in the morning. I know there are the ones on eBay from England for $145, but is there a homemade version that also works? If so, how to make it?

    Thanks!

    Actually I'm hoping to find something less expensive than the one from England at $145. Are there any home-made plans that work? One guy is selling plans for one on eBay but for $25 just for the plans, which seems very high to me.
