Guys, I might be asking a dumb question here, but I never open my garage door, because I have a lot of stuff in my garage that borders the door and doesn't allow it to open, namely tall racks containing my musical instruments. There are two additional doors that are built into the garage on the other sides of the garage, however I am about to block one of them off with storage containers which won't allow access to the door, and the other door is on my neighbors (who is also my tenant) side. I've been entering through the neighbors/tenants side, but that's not going to work out for me anymore because I don't want to enter their back yard execpt to clean it up. I don't want to hassle them needlessly.
Now I'm left with the option of installing a roll up steel door to replace my standard wood garage door with hinges, or of installing a standard door (think hinges and a door handle like you use every day to get into your rooms) into my wooden garage door. I've priced roll-up steel doors and they are out of my budget, unless someone knows of a cheap roll up door that I can find somewhere online. The door pictured below is my garage door--it's made of vertical planks of wood that are about 2" deep and 9.5" wide. What I am thinking of doing is literally cutting a rectangle in my garage door with a sawzall and going to Home depot and grabbing an outdoor approved door and installing it in there along with the frame. Is this a dumb idea or has anyone ever heard of anyone doing this before? Please stop me from making a huge mistake if that's what I'm about to do
