Installing Carriage-Style Garage Doors

Project: Modern Colonial, Episode 8, Part 3

With a growing number of people working from home these days, it's important to have sufficient power for home office needs. Ron Ford from Kohler joins Bob onsite to talk about a new Kohler Generator system being installed for just that purpose.

On the other end of the house, new Wayne-Dalton Carriage House garage doors are being installed (for use with a Craftsman garage door opener). Also, Bob tours the Jackson homestead in Newton, MA.

Part 3: Installing Carriage-Style Garage Doors
New Wayne-Dalton Carriage Doors are installed in the garage. These Equestrian style doors are made of medium density fiberboard with a Cedar overlay.

Dave Colette from Doorworks talks Bob through the installation, which includes attaching the hardware, putting up the tracks, and securing the door panels.
Part 4: Heavy-Duty Garage Door Opener and Features
This project focuses on the construction of a Colonial-style home built with both history and the future in mind. While the 4-bedroom, 4-bath home will have a traditional exterior and interior detailing, the plan will suit the needs of a modern family, including easy-maintenance fireplaces, a great room, master suite, sun room, 3-car garage, and a large walk-out basement with plenty of room for recreation and indoor/outdoor living.
