It's a-door-able

Yes! I just bought a door. Well, my dear partner and I bought a door. She helped me get it strapped down into the back of my little Elantra so we could transport it safely to our new home. What does that door mean? It means I'll have a screen on front and back. Because I got a project kit with two knob/deadbolt combos, now both front and back screen doors will have proper locks. So I can have a wonderful cooling breeze go straight through the house, and air the place out without our wonderful little calico getting loose, meanwhile she can sniff all the breezes she likes (including the bunnies). It also means I'll have good security, because it's actually a security screen door - with stout mesh and sturdy bars, to protect my home against burglars and attempted lock picking of the inner door. I'll look forward to having wonderful airflow through the house, which will also mean lower power bills because I won't have to run the cooler as much. The landlord doesn't mind either. All this for less than a hundred dollars, pre-hung. We'll hang it soon!

I can't stand mosquitoes either. Even hanging some netting over the door would help.

You must have one well trained cat. Our cats can't be trusted around screens, because they tear through them easily. Since we live on the ground floor (because of my husband's and my health), so we would't want our cats getting loose. I'm kind of glad we opted not for the screen door option, because of the cats, and well we don't need to hear everything going on in the breezway (anymore than we already do). Good luck with your new door, and hopefully you get good airflow to cut down on cooling costs.

Mouse isn't getting through this heavy steel screen... yet another reason why a security door is best.
