If you need a wide baby or pet gate for your house, you will love this tutorial on making one at home for much much less than a custom fit gate would cost. This is perfect if you need to keep the baby or the dog out of the kitchen for safety or other reasons. Snug As A Bug Baby shares a tutorial on how they built theirs to keep the baby out of harms way in the kitchen by building a made to fit gate that separated the kitchen from the rest of the house. While there is a gate to walk through it is more like a fence with a gate in it and for wide spaces like this we are talking hundreds of dollars to by something to fit.
They built theirs from pvc pipe and wood with some hinges and a latch for the gate part and it cost a fraction of what a custom fit gate like this would have cost if purchased from a store. Now you can build one and save big while doing so. It would work really well for your dog or dogs too. No more coming home to the trash can dumped all over the house or tripping over the pups while trying to cook dinner. This is an awesome idea and a great money save as well.
