Now that the basement is finished, I'd like to cover the entry way without narrowing the interior width of the door, i.e. no door jamb. I've considered something like a storm door that mounts on the outside of the door, but that would be tacky for an interior door.... Any ideas if you didn't want to get a pre-hung door AND it was sturdy enough because it was framed for a door?
Just don't get the door that swings both ways (mrc59's post) - don't want to knock someone down the stairs by accident!

absolutely, I wouldn't use traditional Hinges though, wouldn't look very nice instead get a hinge kit for a door that open opens both ways, or a bifold hardware kit would work as well,
