I know someone who done this the way bob is telling you and he extended his door by screwing those thick clear plastic 6inch strips you see on big freezer doors to kept the wind and rain out it does the job well. Also instead of glass you can put polycarbonate in the door not as heavy and cant really break hope this helps you.
