Hello All,
I have been trying to swap out my garage doors for the last 2 years. Finally got around to doing it in October.
Just wanted to pass the idea along incase anyone wants to try something like this in their shop.
I purchased 3 Solid core office doors from someone on Craigslist.
I installed 3 window sashes i ordered from a local window factory.
Next step is to insulated the inside of the door with 1” rigid insulation.
Thanks For looking

It appears the 2 doors are the left in the pic are hinged to fold together, but not exactly bi-fold style…is this what you did? BTW, it’s a great idea, I’d love to replace the OH door on my shop with something like that.

They swing all the to the left but i couldnt make them bifold because of a hinge and space issue. If i have to open full width, the center and left door fold back.

Have your say...
