Can anyone show my pix of hoe they built a basic door for their walk-in run?
I will be building a basic 'screen' door that will be about 29.5"w x 70"h.
The basic frame I think I can figure out, but I am more interested in how people attached the 'screen'.
I figure Hardware cloth on the bottom and 2"x3" on top like the rest of my run.
Anyway, anyone got any pix of theirs?
Thanks,
Steve

I haven't got pictures right now, but I took an $18 wood screen door frame from Home Depot, pulled the the fiberglass screen out, and replaced it with hardware cloth, fastened with fence staples. Make sure you treat the frame with a sealer to weather proof it. This is easier done before you put the hardware cloth on.

I did the same thing as Farmington. I stapled 2x4" welded wire over the whole thing, with hardware cloth sandwiched in between the door frame at the welded wire on the bottom 2'.

Excuse the messiness, I haven't finished painting yet.
