Keeping out the little things

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s the little things in life, y’know?

We have some glass doors opening out onto a lovely deck with a beautiful view. As the weather warms up, we’ve been leaving the doors open to invite the spring inside.

But there are other things besides the spring weather that can come in through those open doors. Aside from mosquitoes and other pests (wasps!), we also have songbirds. …

…and hummingbirds.

These critters do best outside, not ricocheting around indoors and smashing into impenetrable windows.

What we needed was a screen door of some sort, but those aren’t readily available for double-door setups. So we ended up purchasing one of those hanging magnetized screen panels. Frankly we didn’t hold out much hope it would perform well, but decided it was worth a shot.

Despite measuring, the screens were a touch small for our double doors. Don solved this by building a frame to place over the doorway.

The screening came with a roll of sticky-backed “hooked” Velcro that glued to the frame.

It took no time to get the “hooked” side of the Velcro up.

It took even less time to get the screen up, pressing the pre-Velcro’d “looped” sides to the corresponding “hooked” Velcro on the frame.

The center seams are magnetized, and gently snap together when the panels fall closed

There was just one glitch in this set-up. “Let me in!”

Fortunately it took Mr. Darcy no time at all to figure out how to go back and forth through the screen panels. And wow, does he love lying out on the porch, watching the world go by.

These panels are a game-changer. They fit perfectly (thanks to Don’s frame) and work beautifully.

Now the spring can come into the house.

Yep, it’s the little things in life.  Or in this case, keeping outthe little things.
