Looking for a used screen door

If anyone has one to sell .... I'm buying. But it has to be 28" large (or wide?)

I was looking at used and new ones , it usually starts at 30" :confused:

I need this for a little project I have. :goodvibes: I'm not asking for free , I will pay for the door.

i could make you a simple one,,like two sides, top bottom and a piece across the center and screen the whole thing,,,or make the bottom solid for safety,,,if Jenniev came to town i could send it back with her. or are you talking fancy like mine...

solid bottom or all screen....mine is made of cedar,,it doesn't warp, mold or mildew,,etc, etc..and it smells good.

I was thinking solid wooded frame , put screen , and put some wooded "bars" across it to reinforce the screen. But that's only if I can't find a used one. I'm looking at wood or aluminium screen doors.

Frenchy, I got a wooden screen door at "Home Hardware" for just $29
It's really basic but does the trick. They have a variety of widths available (my door is an odd size so I had to shave one down).
http://www.homehardware.ca/Products/index/show/product/I2627544/name/door_scrn_pine_t_bar_30x80_5
I guess regular price is $39,99 but they should be on sale this time of year.

old doors seem to be everywhere.. until you are trying to find one :wall::D

good luck:thumbs up

You gave up on the pedipaws :confused:

Don't you think you should tell folks why you want the door :rolleyes:

yes , and then I bought a Pedicure , and the motor seized so I took it back , and then I bought a dremel , much better ! :thumbs up

:laughing: you guys are too funny :laughing:

ok ok , the door is for the guest bedroom , that I'm changing into a small catuary so I can start fostering cats , maybe 2-3 at a time , or moms with kittens. If all goes well , I'll be taking the first fosters in 2 weeks.

I'm giving the bed away (just the mattress) I'll know more next week , someone might come by and pick it up. I was also looking at the base of the bed , it's an old futon wooded base , I think we can make the door by using some of this wood. :thumbs up and will also ask my friend about building a cat tree for the fosters. :cat:

I can't wait :goodvibes:

Yeah!!!! I have a blind girl and a 3 legged boy (we got him through a member here - but then he had 4 legs, one broken badly that required removal). You up to it???:grouphug:

:grouphug: You are the best!! And I am honoured you are using my word "catuary". :D You have a huge heart my friend and I am honoured to know you!! :grouphug:
I guess you don't know yet if you are going with the slats or the aluminum screening.

BM - Since you mentioned the little guy with three legs - how is he doing? :fingerscr I am sure he is flourishing with your rescues' help.

YOU have been an inspiration 14+ , by seeing everything you do :thumbs up

It killed me when I saw that Churchill wouldn't accept new foster dogs. He could get better but , I'm not going to risk the safety of a foster while trying. I get e-mails about dogs in need of rescuing every day , you don't know how that makes me feel , knowing I can't take any of them. :(

I never thought about fostering cats before for that same situation , the others might not welcome him/her , takes a long time to get them all used to one another. Then you have to start all over again with another foster cat ... but by keeping them in the "catuary" , the fosters will have less stress :thumbs up

It is a little sad more people don't take a seldom used room and do the same thing. Just think of the inroads we could make on improving the fate of a lot of kitties. :cloud9:
Churchill comes first. And yes, I know exactly how it feels to turn away an animal in need. :( It breaks our hearts slowly. But on the upside you have helped so many! :highfive:

Frenchy
April 15th, 2010, 11:48 AM
I should also add that , the rescue that I will be fostering the kitties for (I already fostered dogs for her 2-3 times) is making "my job" easier. All the cats (and dogs) are vetted before going into fostering. They're all tested so I know the ones I take , won't be bringing unwanted visitors to my house. :p and I really like "working" with Benmax. :)

I love this rescue. I have to say , I have fostered for 3 different rescues so far , and I love all 3. :)

Yes , I kept thinking I need a guest bedroom .... but for what ? Having guest 2-3 times a year ? :confused: next time I have visitors , they'll just have to take my room and I'll sleep in the living room , I already fall asleep on the couch most nights anyway :laughing:

I also thought about having a roomate but only someone that I know. I don't have friends in need of a room , I do know of cats that would though :D

I have a "free room" coming up soon too. :laughing::laughing: Hubby would kill me!!!!!

Speaking of cats - gotta go do some cleaning in a small house I know.... :rolleyes:

She is the greatest isn't she! I am so pleased as this type of service is GOLD!!!

BM - Since you mentioned the little guy with three legs - how is he doing? :fingerscr I am sure he is flourishing with your rescues' help.

He is actually doing great. That leg was badly mangled and there was no saving it at that point. He can bolt like there is no tomorrow. You wouldn't even know that he was 'challenged'. To him, I am certain it's a relief and no longer hindering his mobility.:thumbs up

Now - challenge #2 is finding him a great home.

My sister told me about a friend of hers , but she'll only see him next week. If he doesn't want it , of course you can have it ! But it would be a long way for you to come and get it ? It's a Serta , Queen , very thick (8 inches) about 5 years old. It's a very hard mattress. I'll keep you posted !



Now - challenge #2 is finding him a great home.

might take a while but sometimes it's the contrary ... sometimes people are not looking for one more cat but if they see one with special need , they'll go : ahhhhh gotta save this poor kitty :cat:

frenchy do u have a salvation army around your place, they might have one. Or do u know of any contractors, they might have one they just removed and are going to throw it out? Would save them dumping fees. How about a junk yard? or a place where people take garage but is for dumping building stuff?

Frency that is so great about the cattery!! You are such a loving person. ((HUGS))

oh oh TQ just made me think of a place,,we have a place called " Habitat for humanity" they have their own private stores where contractors donate stuff from job sites instead of dumping them..from lights right up to complete kitchens..the store is called the re-use it store...see if you have one there.

Some of those ReStores you might as well go to another store and get one brand new. Their prices are outrageous. Five or so years ago it was a bargain to go there. Now the prices are "competitive". :rolleyes: They lost sight of what the store was started for which was to help people who could not afford places like Home Depot, Ronas, etc.
