A little about the guy who makes the grilles

Peter Todd Hudson is a true Florida native and current resident of Siesta Key, Florida. Peter spent his early childhood in Orlando, and then moved to Sarasota, where he lived until leaving for college.

Throughout his teen years and young adult life, Peter worked with his father in the pool and patio industry. He was always fascinated with the versatility of the aluminum they used for building, and often spent countless hours considering the many things that could be created with this light and durable metal. When he wasn't working, Peter spent his time in or near the water - fishing, boating, windsurfing, name it.

After receiving a degree in Engineering from the University of Alabama, he returned to his native Florida to work in the family business of building custom screen and glass pool and patio enclosures....and he sure didn't mind being able to breathe the salt air again!

Peter decided to create the line of handcrafted door grilles you see here, as well as delving into metal art and eventually into the wonderful world of gardening, via handcrafting Metal Garden Trellises. Our Screen Door Grilles are designed for homeowners who want to add a beautiful, custom, decorative element to their front entryway, patio or porch entrance, without the burden and expense of installing a new door, as well as to protect screens from pets. We may have other designs available, just message us for additional information.
