    Good idea we are considering putting one on my Grandsons bedroom door since he is upstairs and even with a gate on the stairs it would be extra security.

    My mom and dad have a screen door at the bottom of their stairs. It keeps the kiddies where they should be and helps with equalizing heat between upstairs and downstairs in the winter time.

    I could really use this. My cat loves to eat electric wires and I just had to replace my whole keyboard and the modem cord to my computer. I hate having the door closed all the time.

    Our cats climb up our screen doors and leave holes from their claws. But we love them :)

    I get the same strange looks as I too have a screen door on my studio. Keeps the four legged kids out when I am working. Hey it works and they don't sit outside the door and MEOW!!! Have a bench on the side wall, outside the door, that they can sit on and watch the fun.

    Who cares what other people think. It's your house and if it keeps the babies safe that is all that matters.

    Looks perfectly normal to me. Besides, it's your house to do whatever you want in it.

    I have a permanently installed swinging baby gate to keep my "babies" (two Brittany dogs) in the back section of the house. When people comment on the gate, I just smile and say, "I know, what a good idea, huh?!" Even though I know what they really mean is, "This is sort of strange."

    What a perfect solution! I may need to do this to keep my big Malamutes out of the sewing room. When I am in there, so are they & I go to move & trip over a leg or head. LOL Sure gets fun some days. Thanks for sharing your idea.

    Great idea. I had a cat once who run up the ironing board that was leaning against a wall and it fell over on him...he walked in circles for days, poor thing.

    My husband does the same thing with his train rooms. But, he says it's for more even heat distribution. His train room and my sewing room are both in the basement. Don't tell him, but one the cats knows how to get the door open and the dog follows her in for a grand ol time. ;-) :-D
