    Hi there –

    I have followed your blog for some time but never have replied on anything. I like seeing your DIY projects. On one of the recent pictures I could see your door for your rig with a diamond pattern on the door opposed to just a regular screen door. Wondered if I could see a better picture of your door? We want to find a rig and will bring our two dogs and I have been thinking how to reinforce the door so that the dogs won’t pop their noses through it. Was your door bought that way or did you guys make that yourselves?

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Kari,

    I’ll email you a picture of the door and see if I can find any details about it. Unfortunately, it’s about 30 degrees outside right now and I’m not opening it if I don’t have to. 😉
