could a regular door be split into two ? how? also could a sil be added on the "top of the bottom half like this door? how? On a budget, just had new doors put in so would like to use those and retrofit, if possible.

Half doors like this can catch fingers easily between the two doors

A better way of doing a "half door" is to add a half door outside the normal door and have it opening outwards... and let the shelf on top be large enough to rest against the full door.

we have been using half doors in ireland for centuries.....

that sounds like a great idea! do you have any pictures of how this looks, where/how to put the second set of hinges..and how the shelf looks. Having trouble visualizing.

the half door opens the opposite way to the full door.
the hinges are on the other side of the frame

Here is a link to an image of an "old" half door which opens outwards... you can see the position of the hinges.. http://damiencarrollphotography.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/half-door-club.jpg

These half doors were used to keep the animals out of the cottages... I guess these days they are used more often to keep kids in.
