We want to get rid of our garage door and convert the garage to a mud/work room. The garage is currently part of the basement. I want to remove the door and frame out the opening with an entry door and perhaps a small window to add light.

The problem is the height of the ceiling is just 80" from slab to joist. All of the standard doors we have seen are 6'8" (80") and require a rough opening of at least 6'10".

Are there any manufacturers that produce a shorter door? Or is my best bet getting a solid wood door and cutting it shorter myself.

Thanks for any input,

I am in the same boat, but not worried about an entry door. Were you successful replacing the garage door and making a new wall? Can you offer any tips?
