New Garage Doors

Project by 3fingerpat posted 07-31-2008 05:12 AM 4129 views 1 time favorited 30 comments Add to Favorites Watch

After replacing the side yard fence, I just couldn’t live with the old, deteriorating garage doors that wouldn’t fully open due to several reasons I won’t go into. I made the new doors by hand using half lap joinery for the 2×4 framing, then skinned with 3/4” plywood and a 1×4 trim. I didn’t realize that I was building tank proof doors when I started. And when I went to hang the new doors, they not only wouldn’t fit properly but they would have brought down the old garage. So, with the help of a friend, we tore off the old “bump out”, that was the front of the garage. Then sank in new 4×4 posts and sistered them to the existing header and framing. Since removing the bump out also caused a lot of exposed framing with no siding, so I had to take the needed siding from the side of the house and put it on the garage. Which in turn led to the next project, new siding, insulation and windows on the driveway side of the house.

Nice job on this project, Pat. Made quite a difference. Did you get rid of the Fleetwood, so you could take the bump out off the front? :] Thanks for the post.

Tim,
Thanks, yup quite a difference indeed, and well worth it, plus I had a lot of fun doing it.
We still have motorhome but will be getting rid of it before we move.
