I had no idea it would make my garage look “legit” but it does. Now I have a garage that doesn’t leak and a door that opens, closes, locks and will keep the weather out.
It’s not a fancy door — there are really fancy garage doors out there — it’s uninsulated, white, no garage door opener — but it’s lightweight and easy to open.
Before the installer left he said, “Do you need a rope to reach this?” He was referring to the handle to bring the garage door down to close it. I got a little miffed. I’m 5’1″ but the door is LOW. It’s true about short people. We are fierce. We have — most of us — adjusted to a tall world. It’s always aggravating and amusing when a taller person 1) realizes how short we are and 2) starts attempting to accommodate it as if our height were a disability. Strangely enough, we mostly go around every day living perfectly normal lives that often include reaching the top shelf. Just so you tall people KNOW the big challenge for me (and I imagine other short people) is not reaching things; it’s carrying things that were designed for taller people. A suitcase, for example.
Next task is cutting back the lilac hedge…
