I recently put in a dog door. I got tired of being a doorman for five dogs. I’ve made these a few times now, usually in a home remodel. The doors used are typical pet doors made to be installed into a homes existing door. On the door with the white columns I use two doors. One at each end of a 9” jamb. I wanted the air space between inside & outside.

Looks good! Where do the gnomes enter and exit?

Funny you should mention them Bob. The gnomes around here sleep a lot. My daughter found one in the yard today. He hasn’t moved for such a long time. He’s been siting in the garden so long that he has moss growing on his head.

btw Bob, my daughter wanted to know if I was going to install a miniature porch light on the door. Any ideas?
