Topic tags/keywords: question

A while back some one posted somewhere about double doors they built for the shop. They were insulated and had these huge hinges. I thought that I had this favorited.

Anyone?

It wasn’t my post, but, I had a local Truss company frame mine up and then I put the RB&B on it. Then it took about five grown men and a small boy to hang them. I used the largest hinges I could find and so far, knock wood, they are holding up quite well. Though not very well shown in the picture, the opening is 9’ high and 16’ across. I’ll take a few close ups today and send them along.

Thanks the door look nice. This post had a cross section of the door that is really what I am interested in.

My Upper Peninsula “Workshop in the woods” has two standard double doors, with a 60” wide x 79” high opening. The upper level door opens to the loft where I store and dry wood.

I figure that anything too big to fit through this opening needs to be made in components and assembled on site.
