We are planning on making it a wall but I want it locked so if someone tries to break in they can't even open the door. What did you guys do? I couldn't see from the pictures.
Good question Skoolietailgater, I thought about removing the door and building a new wall, but I decided that would be too much work. We decided to weld a bracket on the wall and drill through the door and bolt it closed. The two bolts are at the top and two will go under the bus. The bolts pull the door closed tighter, which I hope will keep it well sealed.
I will frame and insulate over the door, but I plan to leave a separation in the framing so the door COULD open (if I were to unbolt it). At least that the thought, that may change when I get to framing over the door (which will be very soon).
You can see the door bolted shut in this photo:
