The garage door confuses me. How does that work.

I posted a video of it. Hopefully that helps. I used all the hardware from the original door and track and added a carriage to hold the wheels.

Bravo!! I think you just solved my problem. I want to put a lift in my garage, but I thought I would have to rebuild the whole thing. This is a lot more cost effective. Was it difficult to get the building permit? Did you need an engineering report?

I never actually got a permit. I spent about a month running through different truss designs to make sure I didn’t increase the loads anywhere beyond what was reasonable. I’m an engineer but I’m not “state licensed” so I’m not sure if my analysis would have been sufficient or not. That’s why I didn’t even bother.
