    Has anyone tried this? They took an old rusty metal shed (which I have), and took 2 walls down and made them screen, and put a screen door in. I emailed the magazine to see if they had directions for the building challenged, but it was just a picture sent in.

    Anyone have any ideas how to frame the wall? what kind of wood? how to attach the wood to the metal shed?

    Thank you Birdy Girl

    The issue is of the latest Mother EArth, but they don't have the picture online - only in the magazine.
