Nice Job
on the decorating. Looks nice. As for Padfoot not going through the doggy door. If it is big enough for him to get in and out without a lot of "scrunching down, etc." then it won't be too difficult to train him. What we did for Sasha (and you remember what a sissy she is), is we took her favorite treat, biscuit, etc. and her leash. Attach the leash to Padfoot, and place the end of it through the doggy door. Stand on the other side (door closed) and with a treat, call Padfoot and gently tug on the leash. give him the treat when he successfully comes through the door. Go inside and repeat the process. after two or three times with the leash and treats, try it a couple of times with no leash and give the treats. It only took about 15-20 minutes to get Sasha to start using it, and I am sure it will be at least that fast for Padfoot. Good luck!

Re: Nice Job
Thank you-- there's still a lot to do, but huge burdens have been lifted as things get done. My living room is almost finished!

The doggy door is definitely big enough for him, he's just scared to go with it... but this dog is also scared of blenders, and the [central] air conditioning. I'll practice with some treats, because standing on one side of the door with it open, calling to him? doesn't work.
