building a wooden screen door

We have just bought a 90 year old house and need to build a wooden screen door for the front. It is 42" wide and the quotes we have gotten to have one built are around $500!!! Can anyone tell us how we could do this ourselves?

Wow. A co-worker just bought a wooden screen door at the Depot for $30.

I would just get the largest off-the-shelf screen door that I could find, and frame out the hinge side to fit it.
It would be far less expensive.
Good luck!
