Is it feasible to cut a pass thru door in my existing garage door (11X7) paneled with windows?

If your garage door is like most, the answer is NO. There are different styles, but most have horizontal sections that are held together with hinges. If you cut those sections vertically, then tried to hinge it all back together in a way that would act as a smaller door, it would fall apart.
Even with a single-piece, rigid door you'd be asking for trouble. It would be so weakened by having a large section cut out of it, it would likely break when you open it.
Unless you're talking about a very small pet door....

Are there any garage doors in this size manufactured with a pass thru door?
