    Thanks for posting. I am definitely going to check out your post/blog closely. I'm tired of propping the screen door open and letting the bugs in just so my guy can go out and play. And I love the more vintage screen doors and been wanting to replace the screen door I have... this may just take care of both of my needs!!!

      I didn't see where the pets could come in and out. It looks like he just replaced regular screen with pet screen. Am I missing something?
