Wow, one inch of clearance before you dump air, I did think it looked tight. And my wife says I am poor at judging distances, HAH!

Fantastic thread... Thanks to you all for sharing the various ideas. We're in the idea phase of a shelter for our coach as I write this, so the thread is a great source of inspiration.

It is supposed to match the primary color of the building. I wanted it to match the Wainscoting, but was told that they didn't have anything that color and would have to paint it to match.

I'd almost consider painting the bottom part of the door to match the Wainscoting.

Electricians are here today. I'm guessing they will work for two days and then the garage door guy will show up.

Still have to get Duke Power out to hook it up.

I have thought about that. I still like the idea of the whole door matching the wane scoring and trim, so painting the whole door is still an option too.

The 900 pound (literally) garage door is up. The crew will be back Monday to install the opener, as will the county for the final inspection. After that, it is up to the power company to supply the electrons and me to do the landscaping.

Did you think about a manual chain door opener as a back up in case of electric failure?

No. It is balanced well. I can open and close it as is.

We still don't have power, but the pool is close enough to plug the RV into. Duke should be out within the next three weeks to connect it to the grid.

Feels good to have it under a roof!

Now the landscaping begins.

Looks good inside.
Does it fit inside with the truck/fifth wheel hooked up?
