Trouble fitting screen door for entrance

Hope someone can help, I want to install a security door for my front entrance but the door handle is making things very difficult. The handle sticks out a bit and doesn’t leave room within the door frame for a screen door. 
Would love some suggestions please 😀

Please refer to the photo I have provided.

Thanks Alison

Hi Alison (@SandA)


Welcome to the Workshop community. We're pleased you could join us and look forward to reading about all of your projects and plans for around the house and garden. Please feel free to post anytime!


Our ever-helpful community members might have some other suggestions for you, but I wonder whether you have considered replacing your door handle with a deadbolt? I see from your photos that you have handles on both sides of the door (inside and out) so don't need the knob. 




See something interesting? Give it the thumbs up!
