Forum Title: Is a garage door possible on this old garage?
This is my single-car garage that has had the original door opening filled with cinder blocks. I'd like to put a garage door back on it - nothing fancy, just functional for a small boat I'd like to keep stored in there. It looks like the cross-member above is rotted, so I'm sure I'd need to replace that. But my question is: do you think I'm just asking for trouble by attempting this? It's an old building, and I just keep thinking that whoever took the old door out did so for a reason. I'm thinking this looks like a pretty straightforward project: knock out the cinder blocks replace that member put in the new garage door It doesn't look like that wall is supporting much of anything considering the roof is just plywood with aluminum over it. Am I oversimplifying this? Would you attempt it in a weekend? Any insight appreciated. I'm pretty handy, but no Bob V.

Are you planning on saving the window or destroying it in the process? And what are you going to replace it with? Also, what type of siding? Bud

I'm pretty sure it's about 8'. Those tables on the interior photos are 6' long, and there's at least a foot on either side of them. Walls are more than a single layer of brick. I'm sure I'd end up going with the cheapest door possible - so hopefully I don't have to order anything custom.
