Any one have any suggestions as to a good method to make stock screen doors work in a 9x7 ft. opening?     thanks, tools

You could purchase three 36" wide doors.  Hinge two of them together like a bi-fold door.  Secure them at the top and bottom in the middle and at the end with slide bolts that go into the lintel and the floor.  Hinge the doors to the frame on one side.  You are assembling two of the doors into a bi-fold.  Leave these doors shut except when you have to pull a car in and out.

Mount the third door in the conventional way and use it for people access.

You'll have to add trim to the frame or wood to the doors to make up the difference in height.
