Just finished screening in my shop/garage. Took some strapping and ripped some boards to fill in the opening of the garage. It has two large doors that open so I can get the car in . A side project was to make a melting mat because the ice that builds up in front of the garage can get a foot thick. So I took some snow/construction fence and put some heat tape on it .It measures 4’ x 24’ so I will lay it down in front of the garage door when it is going to snow.

Great idea. Looks nice. I have been thinking about ways to screen my garage shop too. When the weather is nice, it’s great to have the doors open but oh the bugs (followed in by the spiders)! It seems you have already figured it out for me too.

Great idea. I saw something like this @ Harbor Freight, (cheap), but really like your approach . .looks very sturdy and solid. . .think I’ll try and incorporate your design to my garage. . . .if you don’t mind.

It looks good and well made. I’m sure it will last long to be enjoyed especially on summers. Great idea and great job!

Great idea. I wish I had the weather that would allow a screen on my garage. Its 92 with 85% humidity today. Time to shut the door and keep the A/C running. I have this tucked away on my computer and if we move closer to the kid’s in the mountains in east TN, I’ll make a set. Nice detailed work.
