Kneewall Access Door

Hello all! I am new here and also a relatively new homeowner.

I am currently finishing a bonus room (FROG) and i have knee wall access holes that i need to install some sort of door. Here are the details that will hopefully give you enough information to assist:
- opening is 32"x30" rough (no jamb)
- Need something lockable (I have 3 small boys!!)
- Dont want to break the bank!

I thank you in advance for your assistance.

Kneewall Access Door

My knee walls have plywood doors
Opening were framed out & trimmed
Rigid insulation can be attached to keep cold air from storage area out

Kneewall Access Door

than to try to find odd sizes to fit. I have made small simple doors by using 1x3 stock with half lapped joints with 1/4" plywood glued to both sides of the frame. Light and strong and the solid wood frame makes it easier to attach hardware.
