, although it's only a single door) and no storm door. It's drafty and I'd like to insulate it as much as I can,
all but the most rudimentary carpentry skills. What's my best temporary solution?
Yes, a storm door is probably the best option longterm, but my semi-absentee landlord is not going to get it taken care of by the time the snow flies. He's ok with me making minor improvements, etc. and lets me take supplies off the cost of rent.
I have access to some basic tools and a power drill/screwdriver, and am comfortable caulking, installing weatherstripping, etc. I almost
think I could install a storm door myself (the tutorials don't look too bad!), but am leery of screwing up a $100+ project on someone else's property.
Snow makes it inconvenient to use the back door for most of the winter, so any solution that makes the door un-openable for the duration is fine. I don't care about aesthetics, although I'd prefer to be able to see out the windows at least occasionally.
Is there an equivalent of this product
for a regular hinged door? Surely there's some way I can attach plastic sheeting to the exterior/interior frame without leaving a permanent residue?
Thanks for your help!
