This is the sectional garage door I went to pick up in Herne bay the other day. Good job I had the van because the panels were pretty big.
This is ruthly where the garage frame had to go. A bit of tidy up was necessary.
The left side is in place...
... and now the right side.
It didn't go as plan, the support of the roof is on the way.
I had to make some new timber to make the support of the roof higher.
That way the roof shouldn't fall on me.
After cutting the existing timber I also had to make a notch.
Everything is now square.
And this is how it looks.
A support for the spring has been made.
And the cable to lift the door is in place.
A bit of tension.
And the door is ready to open
Hey Hey !!!
Now the hard work. I had to hire this angle saw to cut the brick and it wasn't easy to cut the wall.
All the bricks are removed one by one.
That's it, the door was behind so I was able to close it straight away.
And I can now move the van on the back garden.
That's it, until next stage.
