This is the new walkout basement doors I had to build to help keep the wind out of my basement while building the walkout extension. I simply datoed the 2×4s for the OSB pieces to fit within. I did not glue them in case I need to make future changes. I also used 3 1/2 deck screws to assemble them. there are 2 locks, a simple 2×4 bar lock to keep it closed tight, and a latch for a padlock near the top.

I have included a couple pics of digging the walkout entry to show why I had to build these doors. I used the biggest tool in my shop to dig it out, my MF3165I Loader. I’m very happy with how well it did in our rocky hard soil.

Nice job. The tractor looks like beast.
