Door handle blocks storm door from closing
Iím looking for a creative way to move a storm door out to provide more clearance for entry Door handle. I bought a new Deco door lock/handle and itís so big that I canít close the storm door.
Itís actually a security door and I have it just so the wife feels more secure when someone comes to the door. A big guy could probably rip it right off, but it gives her a little more time to shut the main door if she has to. It has a glass window that slides down with a screen so she can talk to whoever is outside, but also has bars to prevent a hand or foot from coming through.
The security side of the door is useless if we canít lock it with the front door closed
I was going to install a 2x4 frame around the outside of the door, but the more I think of it the more tacky it sounds because I have Stucco walls. Also since I do have Stucco Wall, I don't want to pull out the jam to make it bigger.
Iím a die hard DIY guy. Donít tell me to hire someone for what I can do myself.
